Meireles: Easy to settle at Chelsea with so many Portuguese

Raul Meireles says he's settled quickly at Chelsea thanks to the presence of so many Portuguese.

Meireles has revealed that the presence of fellow Portugal internationals - and former manager Andre Villas-Boas - at Chelsea has made his move to Stamford Bridge easier than his Anfield switch.

"Bosingwa helped me a lot in the first few days," he said.

"Also, I know Paulo Ferreira and Hilario through the national team and I worked one month with the coach at Porto last year.

"It's good for me that they are here to help me. It's easier than this time last season when I went to Liverpool because I didn't know anybody then.

"This way is better for me."
