This season, he played an important role but scored few as his partner Didier Drogba grabbed the lime light by taking the the Golden Boot from Wayne Rooney and scoring 25% of Chelsea's goal this season.
Anelka took up a very assisting play running wide outside the box and breaking defenders with his fast and skillful dribbling skills followed by deadly passes to be finished by Drogba.
Anelka has become completely assist minded and lost his touch of scoring as everyone could see this season.
In the absents of Didier Drogba when he went off to Africa, Chelsea scored their first 7 goal game against Sunderland. Anelka was the main striker available but he did not score anything... However, we see he outside the box and sending the ball into the box with his cross and passes which lead to the 7 - 2 game.
Then the following 7 goals game which shock a lot of fans and players from other clubs saw Drogba not getting involve a lot due to his injuries... Anelka continued his assisting play as Frank Lampard and Malouda steal the glory...
news are around that Chelsea plans to put the France striker on sale when the summer window opens but Ancelloti released a statement before the Wigan game that he will not sell but might buy... so... who knows?
