"We've had a difficult week and I think it is a great game to try to win," Kolarov told Sky Sports News.
"[A win] means we can start fighting for the title. Obviously without David Silva it will be difficult because he is a massive player for us. I think we have a lot of good players and they can replace him.
"I think it is always 50-50, but we need to show we are at home and be aggressive."
