Nicolas Anelka is backing Chelsea pal Didier Drogba for a big performance against Arsenal today.

The Ivory Coast hitman always shines against the Gunners but Anelka says Drogba doesn't raise his game just because it is their London rivals.

"Didier is just the same as before other games when we play Arsenal," said Anelka. "But I think he likes to play against them and of course he likes to score against them.

"To score against a big team is always good for a striker and it is good for Chelsea. I hope it will be the same this weekend."
