Grant: No pressure on Chelsea strikers

Nicolas Anelka has only scored twice since he arrived at Stamford Bridge for £15million in the January transfer window, while his strike partner Didier Drogba has netted just once since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations.

Chelsea face Tottenham on Wednesday night in a crucial Premier League clash at White Hart Lane and victory could leave Grant's side level on points at the top with both Manchester United and Arsenal ahead of their Sunday clash with the Gunners.

"I'm not worried as long as the team are scoring goals," said Grant.

"Anelka, when he played against West Ham and against Derby, played like a team player. We won because of him. He played well.

"If he plays well and the team scores four or six goals, it's still good even if you do judge strikers by goals.

"I'm sure he and Didier will score goals. Our game is that we play with three forwards and the players behind come forward and provide goals. The team score, not one player."
