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.”
