Nicolas Anelka insists he accepts his bench role at Chelsea.

"It is not frustrating, I am new in the club," said Anelka. "The manager wants to play 4-5-1 and I have to stay on the bench.

"I don't know if I will start. You need to ask the manager. Even if I am on the bench, I will have a chance to play and I will do my best.

"I hope one day I will get the chance to play my position in a 4-4-2."
