Scolari's Chelsea force Kaka to take notice

Chelsea 5-0 AC Milan

Kaka might want to reconsider his loyalty to AC Milan after the Italians were hammered by his summer suitors Chelsea in Moscow.

Four goals from a razor-sharp Nicolas Anelka were more than enough to settle the third-place play-off in the Railways Cup pre-season tournament after Frank Lampard opened the scoring.

• Scolari impressed by four-goal Anelka

Milan's Brazilian star did not feature as his team put in a miserable display, typified by some comically inept goalkeeping by Zeljko Kalac.

A strong Chelsea line-up saw Michael Ballack make his first appearance of the Blues' pre-season following his late return to the squad after Euro 2008 duty with Germany.

But it was his central midfield partner Lampard who put Luiz Felipe Scolari's side ahead in the second minute when his curling free-kick was missed by everyone and the ball flew in through Milan keeper Kalac's legs.

It was two in the eighth minute when Anelka latched on to a poor defensive header to fire home low from the edge of the area.

The Frenchman added a third 10 minutes later when Kalac's day went from bad to worse.

Attempting to clear a routine backpass, the Australian kicked nothing but air, allowing Anelka to steal in and tap into an empty net.

Chelsea were utterly dominant and Shaun Wright-Phillips very nearly headed a fourth soon afterwards as they sought to make amends for their shoot-out defeat to Lokomotiv Moscow two days ago.

A Milan side with no recognised strikers, but featuring former Arsenal star Mathieu Flamini in midfield, were providing little resistance and Anelka completed his hat-trick six minutes after the restart.

Deco played in Florent Malouda down the left and the winger's cross found his countryman, who headed accurately into the corner of the net.

Remarkably if was four for Anelka and five for Chelsea in the 58th minute when another flowing move down the left ended with Malouda centring once more for the former Bolton striker to volley home.

The Premier League runners-up took their foot off the gas in the last quarter but still dominated and the lively Malouda fired narrowly over with a good long-range effort.

  • Scolari impressed by four-goal Anelka

    Chelsea coach Luiz Felipe Scolari believes Nicolas Anelka finally showed he can be his lethal weapon with a four-goal rampage against AC Milan.

    The clinical Frenchman scored two in each half as the Blues hammered the Italians 5-0 in Moscow in the pre-season Railways Cup after Frank Lampard's early opener.

    'This game was important for Anelka but more important for us - the fans, the coach and the other players who will have more confidence in him,' Scolari said.

    'Today was good not because he scored four goals but because he played more free and with more quality than in other games.

    'He was playing against a big club and to get four goals against Milan, for his confidence it is fantastic and Anelka today and in the last game played more inside the penalty area than before.

    'That is where I asked him to play and where I need him, not right and left as before, because we have one striker and that is Anelka.'

    With Didier Drogba getting ever closer to returning to training after a knee injury, Scolari admits he has some tough decisions to make before meaningful action kicks off against Portsmouth on August 17.

    'Maybe I will receive good news about Drogba and we have 12 days to train and maybe we will have something I don't expect,' he said.

    'I have quality, competitive players and they fight for places on the pitch. I have 22 here, five at home. I have a good team.'
