Chelsea striker Loic Remy is enjoying his time at Stamford Bridge even though both Diego Costa and Didier Drogba are ahead of him in Jose Mourinho's pecking order for the number nine role.
The French international striker joined the Blues from Queens Park Rangers in the summer for £10.5m after seeing his move to Liverpool collapse due to allegedly failing a medical.
But with Costa and Drogba also arriving to west London as part of Mourinho's striker overhaul in the summer, Remy has only started one Premier League game.
But the French international forward accepts the situation and says he will try to seize his opportunities, as he did during the 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur to scored his third goal of the campaign after replacing Drogba in the second half.
"Because I was injured, it was good for the confidence for me to come in and score. I was very happy and very proud but it was the work of all the team who made me score," he said.
"I just feel really proud to be on the bench first but of course I want to play, that is why I work hard during the training sessions. But we have three good strikers and the others show me a good example, they are very professional and for me it is a real pleasure to play with this kind of player.
"I try to increase my level and improve and it is really good to work with them, and every time the manager wants to use me, I try to do my best. There are a lot of games coming so I am not worried about staying on the bench. We are in all competitions so we need everybody and for me it is important to be ready when the opportunity arises."
Even though he reportedly had offers from Tottenham and Arsenal too, Remy does not regret his move to Chelsea as he is happy to have the chance to learn from the best.
"We know the quality of Diego [Costa]. He is a really good striker but Didier [Drogba] and me showed we can be without Diego - but we need everybody.
"The squad being strong makes the difference between us and other teams.
"Didier is a legend, everybody knows him here and the way he is playing at the minute is very good. He helps the team, he is not selfish and he scores some goals. He is amazing, so I have to take the example from him."
