Chelsea progress pleases Eto'o

The striker, who doubled his goal tally for the season with a hat-trick against Manchester United, is confident the club will have won a trophy by the end of the season
Samuel Eto'o has expressed satisfaction with Chelsea's progress in his first season at the club.

The Cameroon striker, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Anzhi Makhachkala in August, doubled his tally of Premier League goals last weekend with a match-winning hat-trick against Manchester United.

And with Chelsea also still competing in the Champions League and FA Cup, Eto'o is hopeful of tasting success come the end of the campaign after helping the Blues keep pace with table-toppers Arsenal.

"At the moment we are still in practically all the competitions," the 32-year-old told the club's official website.

"If Chelsea are not the best club in the world then they are one of the best clubs in the world, so I don't know if we are going to win everything but the season is going well so far.

"The season is long, and there are a lot of things that could happen, but I hope to score more goals, help my team and then hopefully the season will end well for Chelsea."

Eto'o was delighted with his impact in Sunday's 3-1 win over United.

"I love the big games," he added. "Before the game I spoke with Jose and I told him I wanted to play this game, but it's tough when we have other great strikers like Fernando [Torres] and Demba [Ba].

"It was good to get the opportunity to play and try and help the team win. The first goal took a deflection; the other two were good because I hadn't had much of the ball so I was glad when the opportunities came my way.

"There is a huge difference between English football and the other championships, you almost can't compare it, but I am trying to adapt very quickly."
