Anelka: Bordeaux were awestruck by Chelsea

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka believes Bordeaux froze in their 4-0 Champions League thumping at Stamford Bridge.

"The press talks about a more attacking game since the arrival of (Luis Felipe) Scolari, but above all it's also a sum of many things," he said. "We had the fortune to score early, to score four goals. Certain matches will be much more difficult than that one.

"We have to value the victory more than the result. The Champions League is won with victories more than the result.

"Bordeaux seemed awe-struck by their return to the Champions League, to debut at Chelsea. But they are a good team. They have a great coach, very good players. They shouldn't be written off too quickly."
