The Reds have not won so far in the Premier League in 2009.
“We have just got to win this game now and show we can beat our big rivals again,” said Kuyt to the Daily Star.
“We’ve done it once and of course we know that would send out a message to everyone – but we are out to win every game.
“We have had too many draws at the start of the second half to the season, and now the only message we can send out is by beating Chelsea.
“It’s a big team, a big game, and we just need to win it.”
