Malouda calls for greater Blues credit

The defending champions have started the new season in superb
fashion with six goals in both their opening two wins against West
Brom and Wigan. Chelsea set a new Premier League record of 103
goals last season and Malouda is miffed as to why Carlo Ancelotti’s
men are not regarded as entertaining as Arsenal or Manchester
United. Malouda believes that Chelsea’s play has stepped up to a
whole new level and that they have demonstrated the quality they
possess already this season. “It is difficult to know why people
still seem to think Arsenal and United play the best football,”
said Malouda. “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.”
