Chelsea's Cole has suffered from Bridge sale

Former Arsenal and Manchester United defender Viv Anderson believes Ashley Cole has suffered from Chelsea's sale of Wayne Bridge to Manchester City.

Anderson, 52, told The Sun: "Ashley has had a bit of a dip in form. Sometimes players go through spells like that. He's falling short of the standards he set himself.

"He seems to have struggled a little bit since Wayne Bridge joined Manchester City.

"Maybe Ashley was thriving on the competition between them.

"Some players need competition to bring the best out of them.

"Ashley needs a nudge to keep him focused."
