Anelka insists everyone happy at Bolton

Bolton have had a poor start to the season and not only do they sit second from bottom in the table but there is constant speculation doing the rounds that all is not well behind the scenes.

"Top 10. I think it is possible and I think everyone will be happy with that," Anelka revealed. "Yes, a top 10 finish - even more, you never know. We have only just started the Premier League season, so we still have 30 games.

"I don't think we need to change anything. We just need a bit of luck. If we win two games in a row the confidence will be there, will come back, and we will start to play better because we are winning games. When you are winning games, you are more confident and you win and you win.

"We should be higher because we have a good team and good players. We changed the manager and we changed the way we played. I can see it on the pitch that we are playing better so we just need rhythm.

"We changed the manager so it's going to take a while to have some success. We changed the way we played also. It is difficult but we are playing better and better and we will start to win some games.

"We have rhythm now. That's good for the players, for the confidence, for the manager and the crowd. Even when we were losing games there was not problem. Our confidence was good and we knew it was just a matter of time.

"The dressing room is fine. Even when we were losing games, we had a great ambience. Everybody likes everybody, there is no fighting."
