Chelsea attacker Salomon Kalou is happy playing in a more central role.

Kalou was played through the middle in victory over Manchester City.

"It is the position I was playing in Holland before so it is an old position for me," Kalou told Chelsea TV.

"At Feyenoord I was playing behind [Dirk] Kuyt and I did well, and hopefully with the new system we are now playing at Chelsea there is a lot of opportunity for me to play behind the striker.

"I didn't play in the last game in the Champions League so I worked hard in the training to show I can be in the first 11 and the manager gave me the chance. Hopefully he was satisfied with my performance."
