Anelka unhappy playing out wide at Chelsea
"I tried to do my best, but what happened, happened. There is a very good chance I will be starting in my natural position next season and that is good.
"I try to do my best on the pitch. I have done it before at other clubs so there is no reason why I can't show my quality at Chelsea."
Nothing would please him more than to be starting up front with Ivory Coast international Didier Drogba, whose future at the club still seems to be in doubt.
"If Didier is still here we can work together," he said. "We haven't really done so yet, but we will be a great partnership. 'We know each other and the way we like to play. But whoever starts we will give our best. But like anything, it all depends on the manager."
