Coyle ignores Sir Alex's "easy game" claims

Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle has tried to ignore comments from Sir Alex Ferguson in which he claimed Chelsea would have an "easy game" against the Trotters on Tuesday evening.

• Sir Alex gives up on title

Chelsea can move four points clear at the top of the Premier League table if they beat Bolton at Stamford Bridge.

Six Alex may have been trying to play a psychological game with the Bolton players, trying to give them added incentive for the trip to the capital. But Coyle was only concerned with his own preparation for the match.

"That's up to him. That's his opinion, he has it and he's given it - all very well,'' said Coyle. "I'll concentrate on what we can do and not what anyone else says.''

Meanwhile, Bolton skipper Kevin Davies is all too aware of the problems Nicolas Anelka may pose if the unpredictable striker starts against his old side. Davies played alongside Anelka at the Reebok before his move to Chelsea.

"It is always difficult to say with Nicolas, he's such a hard person to read,'' Davies told the Bolton News. "You never quite know what's going through his mind.

"There seems to be something not quite right with him and Didier Drogba. I'm not sure they get on very well.

"There doesn't seem to be a great bond when they play together, whereas Nicolas lights up when he plays on his own.

"You can't deny he's a great player capable of making something out of anything - but at the moment, you feel he's just not that happy.''
