Didier Drogba : Chelsea News
“Pellegrini expects Didier Drogba rather than Loïc Remy to replace Costa and Ramires to step up if Fabregas’s hamstring worsens. “They have very good players, Ramires, Drogba,’’ continued Pellegrini.”
 Daily Telegraph  Today
““Players like John, Petr Cech and Didier Drogba have all done it before, they know what it takes. They will be a big influence on the younger players in the dressing room.”
 Mirror  Today

“Drogba's last goal against City came during a brilliant 6-0 home win for Chelsea in October, 2007 when he bagged a brace against a defence which consisted of Micah Richards, Richard Dunne, Javier Garrido and Vedran Corluka.”
 Daily Mail  Today
“Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho called Didier Drogba the “best value” signing in the club’s history earlier this week, but former Blues owner and chairman Ken Bates disagrees.”
