Chelsea's Anelka: Goals not on my mind

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka insists "goals are not my thing".

"Goals are not my thing," he said. "I don't play football to score goals. I love the game.

"I am not interested in scoring if I play poorly during the match. It is for this reason that I want to play behind a main striker. It is where I feel I'm most useful. People only remember goals. I am different."
