Schalke 04 coach Jens Keller insists that his side will give everything to give home fans something to cheer about against Hamburger SV tomorrow.

Schalke coach Jens Keller has called on a vocal home support to help his side get their Bundesliga campaign off to a flier against Hamburger SV tomorrow.

Keller begins his first full campaign under pressure to deliver Champions League football for a third straight season.

With Julian Draxler and Klass-Jan Huntelaar both still at the Arena AufSchalke, Keller believes that his side are capable of making a strong start to the new Bundesliga season.

He told reporters: "We're in front of our own fans and, with them behind us, we want to win this game."

Keller also confirmed that Jefferson Farfan has recovered from a virus to enter his plans for tomorrow's match.

He said: "Farfan is definitely going to start."

Schalke finished fourth in the Bundesliga last season, earning a Champions League qualifier against Metalist Kharkiv after a fine end to the campaign under Keller.
