Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is delighted he kept hold of Danny Sturridge in the summer. He marked his first start of the campaign with a goal in the Blues' 2-1 win at Sunderland.

Villas-Boas said: "We had a lot of teams calling Daniel to take him on loan during the transfer window but it was never going to happen.

"The technical staff and I all had the feeling we should bring him in. We have an outstanding player."
