James Collins is confident that Aston Villa can repeat their 2-1 triumph over reigning champions Chelsea this weekend.
Collins acknowledges that it will not be easy, whilst remaining positive about his side's chances.
Villa will be boosted by the fact Chelsea are missing a number of their key starts and Collins hopes history repeats itself this weekend.
"It's a similar situation to last time, as we played them just after international duty last season," Collins said.
"You know it's going to be a tough game against them but on the day we were superb.
"It was a good performance and topped off with a winning goal for myself. I had all my family there and to get a win was unbelievable."
Chelsea have won six of their first seven matches of the campaign, and Collins cannot wait for the challenge.
"Certainly looking at their start to the season, Chelsea look stronger," he added.
"They've been a great team for years and years now. Any game you have against them is going to be among your toughest of the season.
"But that's what you're here to do. You shouldn't be nervous going into the game or not sleeping because this is where you want to be and who you want to play against.
"If we beat them I don't think it will be a shock result. We've done it before and we're certainly capable of doing it again."
Despite currently being in eighth place, Collins believes Villa are in good form heading into the Chelsea showdown.
"I think the way we've started the season, a few of the results have been not what we've been looking for," he continued.
"But certainly the way we've been playing football the last couple of games we can give anyone a game.
"Against many of the top teams in the league we have done well like going to Old Trafford last season and getting the 1-0 win. We've got to take confidence from those games."
