 ‘Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka come back in the next days, and we also have Daniel Sturridge — so I don’t think we need other strikers. I’m happy to have this squad at the moment.
‘Cole will be important for us next season. 100 per cent. We have to maintain the same feeling.’

 Chelsea will kick start their title defence against West Brom on 14th August at Stamford Bridge.
