Chelsea boss Scolari happy to see free-scoring Anelka

Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari was delighted to see Nicolas Anelka net four goals in last night's 5-0 thumping of AC Milan.

Scolari said: "It was important for Anelka but more important for us to have more confidence for this player.

"He's one of the players that we need this season. Today, not because he scored four goals, but he played with more quality and freedom than in the other games.

"It's fantastic for his confidence to score four times against Milan. He believes more and the other players believe in him more."
