Anelka: Jolly glad I made Chelsea move

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka admits he's "jolly glad" he moved to Stamford Bridge.

Anelka has turned out for Arsenal, Paris St Germain, Liverpool and Manchester City during his much-travelled career.

The last time he was gunning for the Premier crown, he was playing alongside the likes of Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira.

But when asked how this Chelsea side compare to Wenger's Class of '98 he smiled and gave the vote to his current team-mates.

He said: "We were strong with Arsenal and I believe we are strong again with Chelsea.

"If I compare the two teams, I think we can do it. I am sure of that.

"Last season it was all new for me and now I'm jolly glad to be here and happy to play football and enjoy the football I am playing.

"So I feel I can score more goals for Ancelotti.

"We know what we want to do and how we want to play.

"I think we can win a lot of things. We have big players - everybody can score so it's good for the club."
