Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Anelka for the FA Cup Quarter-Final against Aston Villa, played at Villa Park on 10th April 2009. Following a goalless first period the Blues turned up the heat after the break firing in 3 to take a commanding win over Martin O'Neill's side. Didier Drogba opened the scoring with 22 minutes to go before Florent Malouda and Frank Lampard added two more in quick succession to set up a Final showdown with Portsmouth at Wembley. Anelka started on the bench but came on with 9 minutes left on the clock to assist Lampard's goal. The former Man City and Bolton man was in stellar form making 46 appearances, 4 of which came in the FA Cup as The Blues beat Pompey 1-0 in the final. Anelka had scored in the sides 4th round win over Preston and bagged another 11 goals in the Premiership as Chelsea pipped Manchester United to the title.
