Chelsea write-off Anelka for Christmas games

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka will miss the Christmas games against Birmingham and Fulham with a calf problem. It was hoped the injury was not too serious, but the France international will now miss the trip to Birmingham on Boxing Day as well as the West London derby with Fulham on December 28.

Chelsea are hoping Anelka will recover in time for the FA Cup clash with Watford on January 3, by which time Didier Drogba will have departed for the African Nations Cup.
