Florent Malouda is looking to continue his improving form at Chelsea when the new season gets underway.
The France winger joined the Blues from Lyon in 2007 and initially struggled to make an impact in the Premier League.
However, Malouda enjoyed an impressive campaign last term, scoring nine goals, and is hopeful he can continue to impress the Stamford Bridge faithful.
He told Chelsea TV: "People talk about the last six months last year but I played nearly 50 games and started the season really well with Felipe Scolari too.
"I was playing a different role when Guus Hiddink arrived, because I was more in the offensive positions and I was in better positions to score goals.
"Before maybe I was useful for the team but it is not something you can see if you don't score or make an assist."
Malouda, who cost Chelsea £13.5million, recently signed a new three-year deal with the FA Cup holders.
