Samuel Eto'o looks to be going from strength-to-strength at Chelsea, proving that he is still one of the best goal-scorers in world football. The Cameroon International is fast becoming a huge favourite at Stamford Bridge after scoring a string of goals recently.
When he first arrived Eto'o appeared to be struggling to cope with the demands that the Premier League places on players. However, once he regained his fitness he proved that Jose Mourinho was right to place his faith in him.
There is no doubting the quality that the striker possesses. His career has spanned several clubs, not least the might of Barcelona and Inter Milan. He signed for Chelsea from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala for an undisclosed fee in August. His initial deal is just for one season but there is every chance Chelsea will look to extend this deal particularly after his form recently.
Eto'o has scored 55 goals in his 112 games for Cameroon.
Since Christmas the Cameroonian has been a regular goal scorer for Chelsea, eclipsing the likes of Fernando Torres, and he has shown the natural instincts in front of goal that has served him well throughout his career.
January witnessed Eto'o blast a home hat-trick against Manchester United in a 3-1 victory. However, March has been the month where Eto'o has really come to the fore. He notched his 300th career club goal with the first goal in a 4-0 demolition of Tottenham and then scored early goals against Galatasaray in the Champions League, out staging former Blues favourite
Didier Drogba, and in the 6-0 thrashing of Arsenal. These games have shown that
Samuel Eto'o is not ready for the scrap heap just yet.
It's obvious the desire to score goals and to succeed is still there for Eto'o and that can only serve Chelsea well in their title challenge this season and beyond, if they decide to offer him a new deal.
