Brunt: West Brom can take motivation from ex-Arsenal, Man City, Chelsea star Anelka

West Bromwich Albion captain Chris Brunt feels the entire Baggies squad can learn a lot from summer signing Nicolas Anelka.

Albion snapped up the veteran French striker earlier this summer and midfielder Brunt is eagerly anticipating what the former Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea man will bring to The Hawthorns.

"With the stuff he has achieved in his career we can learn stuff off him but on the pitch he is your teammate," Brunt told the club's official website.

"You expect him to do his job and he expects you to do yours. That's just the way it is.

"When you see a name like that coming to your club you want to play with him and see how he does, and you want to ask him questions about where he's been before.

"I have enjoyed playing with him so far in the games. He got a couple of goals last night, which will be good for him."
