Florent Malouda claims Chelsea don’t get credit


Winger Florent Malouda claims Chelsea do not receive the credit they deserve.

The Blues have started the defence of their Premier League title with back-to-back 6-0 routs of West Bromwich Albion and Wigan Athletic.

However, Malouda, who has himself scored three goals in the two games, is unhappy that title rivals Manchester United and Arsenal continue to take more plaudits for their styles of play.

"It is difficult to know why people still seem to think Arsenal and United play the best football," claimed the Frenchman.

"Even when we finished on top of Arsenal, people said they played better than us.

"If you want to win the league, you have to be efficient, but when you look at how many goals we are scoring, you surely have to recognise there is real quality about us.

"The manager has worked at making sure we control games and you are seeing an evolution in our play. We are keeping more clean sheets but also scoring a lot more goals.

"It is not enough for us now just to go 1-0 up. We have developed a killer instinct and want to finish teams off.

"There are goals throughout this team and if there is an opportunity to kill a game off, we take it.

"We'll never go easy on teams and it is great for confidence to know just about everyone in the squad is capable of scoring goals."
