Chelsea forward Nicolas Anelka sees no reason why he can't form a successful striking partnership with Didier Drogba.
Both men appear to prefer playing as a lone striker and Anelka has already found the net eight times in a season in which Drogba has spent most of the time injured.
Anelka grabbed a hat-trick in the 5-0 victory against Sunderland while Ivory Coast international Drogba came on as a second-half substitute.
The Frenchman said: "Didier and I can play together but we have not done that since I have been here.
"We have never started together up front. If we have started together then I was either on the right or left.
"So it's a shame, because I wanted to play with him when I first signed with Chelsea, but I hope it will happen.
"I think it could work with the two of us. But it's the choice of the manager.
"The most goals I have ever scored in a season is 25, for Man City. I will try to do better than that. But what matters is for Chelsea to win more titles."
