Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti was full of praise for striker Nicolas Anelka after he helped the side to a 4-1 Champions League win over Spartak Moscow on Wednesday night.

The Frenchman scored the first goal of the match then continued to be a nuisance for the Russians and his showing was not lost on Ancelotti.

“Anelka was the key to opening up the game. He scored a fantastic goal - the most important this evening,” he said.

"I think he is happy at this moment. He's the same compared to last year and the same Anelka I found when I came here, nothing has changed.

"He has experience. He maintains very good skill, ability, and speed. Overall he is in the best moment of his career."
