Anelka looking to lay down marker

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka has called on his team-mates to prove that they are good enough to win the Champions League by beating Manchester United in their upcoming showdown. Chelsea edged one step closer to May's Wembley final by beating FC Copenhagen in the last 16. Their reward for victory over the Danish minnows was a tough tie against Barclays Premier League title rivals United. Anelka admits the draw could not have been much harder for Chelsea, but concedes that they must beat the best sides on the continent to become European champions for the first time in their history. "We know them (United) but I don't think it's a good draw because they are a good team and difficult to beat with a lot of quality players," Anelka told Chelsea's website. "But, if you want to win the Champions League you have to beat good teams."
