Shevchenko dismisses form fears
Andriy Shevchenko
Shevchenko has not scored for Chelsea since August
Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko has shrugged off concerns about his form and insists he is happy at the club.

The 30-year-old Ukrainian has scored one goal in seven Premiership games since his 30m transfer from AC Milan.

"Players go through difficult times and it happens to everyone but I feel young and full of energy," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I chose Chelsea and I will continue on this path. I feel more free in London than Italy. Life is more simple."

Shevchenko, who has started every game this season, also denied he is treated differently to other Chelsea players because of his friendship with club owner Roman Abramovich.

"I am not Abramovich's golden boy," added Shevchenko.

"I am just a player and he is my president, he takes care of all his players."
