Anelka urges Chelsea to hold onto Drogba

Nicolas Anelka is keen to see Chelsea deal in teammate Didier Drogba.

He said: "I want Didier to stay. We have had to wait one year to start together but we have shown in the last few months that we can play well as a partnership. This is good for the new manager and the club. They know we can play with two strikers.

"Opposition defences don't like playing against us and he helped me finish as the Premier League's top scorer in the final few weeks. We are not just focused on our own goals, we put the club first. I'm not the chairman or manager and they are going to buy players anyway, but we're strong.

"We can bridge the gap to United next season. We have a big squad, with big players, we just need to concentrate on next season and play like we did."
