West Bromwich Albion defender Liam Ridgewell is convinced Shane Long will thrive alongside new teammate Nicolas Anelka.

Anelka has signed for his sixth Premier League club – having already netted more than 100 top-flight goals in England during his career.

“I’m sure Shane will be looking forward to it,” the left-back told the Sunday Mercury. “Him and Shane together could be frightening.

“I wouldn’t want to be defending with those two running at me. As a pairing I’m sure they’ll be very good for us.”
