Terry salutes strikers


Recommended Posts

Chelsea captain John Terry has hailed the form of strikers Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka.

Drogba has scored six times in the Premier Leaguealready this season and notched his 100th goal for the Blues in thedefeat at Wigan.

Anelka, meanwhile, has netted the winning goalsin each of Chelsea's two UEFA Champions League group games in theabsence of the suspended Drogba.

Having regularly played withjust one up front in recent times, manager Carlo Ancelotti appears tohave got the best out of both men and Terry is delighted with the waythey are playing.

"Well done to Didier on reaching 100 Chelseagoals as when you think how much time he spends up front alone, howdemanding the modern game is on the central striker, you realise what aspecial achievement it is," said Terry.

"This season he's playing as well as ever and it is easy to believe the next goal is never far away.

"It is the same with Nico, who is scoring regularly again and that winner in Cyprus really was a fantastic strike."

Didier Drogba credits his flourishing partnership with fellow Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka to their shopping trips together!

"We like to shop, we are both very much into our clothes and eat together too," said Drogba.

"And the fact we get on off the field is starting to show on the field."

Yeah they are finally potent together which is great

I remember reading Drogba talking about how when he plays with Nico he just does the kind of thing that he knows Nico would want because they're both strikers, putting in the right ball etc.

lol @ the shopping together :champions:, better that they're mates then enemies though!

Yeah I thought was funny :lol: . I bet they can read each others minds and that's another reason they work so well together. :)

The whole shopping bit made me happy. When the players get along together outside of the game then they certainly will want to help each other inside of the game as much as possible. I wonder if Ancelotti set them up on a play date because they never got to work together under Grant and Hiddink.
