Chelsea captain John Terry admits the best is yet to come in Europe as the Blues gear up for their Barclays Premier League showdown with Arsenal on Sunday.

Chelsea ensured they would finish top of their Champions League group with a 1-0 win over Porto on Wednesday night.

A 69th-minute winner from Nicolas Anelka left Chelsea unbeaten in Europe so far this season and Terry admitted: "We haven't hit top gear in Europe yet. There is still more to come from us."

He added: "The momentum, the way we're playing and the confidence can only take us in one direction and that's forward. We can work better and will find solutions from where we've gone wrong.

"We will regroup after the group stage and look forward to the draw, although it looks like there could be a difficult draw because there will be a number of big teams finishing second."

Meanwhile goal hero Anelka insists that winning the Barclays Premier League with Chelsea would eclipse his triumph with Arsenal over a decade ago. The striker wants a second Premier League medal after suffering years of frustration since helping Arsenal win the double back in 1998.

"Winning it with Chelsea will be even bigger than when I did it with Arsenal," said Anelka "That will mean I'm in one of the biggest teams in the world.

"When I won it with Arsenal I did appreciate it at the time. Sometimes you only have one chance in your life. I had this chance before and now I have a second chance to win it again.

"I have had a lot of time to wait to win something again in England. I won the FA Cup last season and I hope this season I will win the title. I don't know if this team are better than the Arsenal one I played in. Arsenal were strong but this Chelsea side are strong, too.

"I did it with Arsenal and I can definitely do it as well with Chelsea."
