Dangerous Drogba back to his very best

AS GOOD AS EVER: Didier Drogba

CHELSEA DEFENDER Gary Cahill says Didier Drogba is back to his best ways after scoring his third goal for Chelsea in as many games.
The veteran striker scored against Shrewsbury last night to help Chelsea take a 2-1 win, and go through to the quarter finals of the Capital One Cup.

The 36 year-old Ivorian rejoined the West London side in the summer from Turkish side Galatasary after a two year absence. Drogba has scored three times now during his second spell at Chelsea, scoring his first against Maribor in the Champions League, while his second came in the thrilling 1-1 draw against Manchester United last weekend.

Cahill believes the veteran striker is back to his dangerous self. “Didier has made a statement over the last week with playing games. We’ve seen in the last two matches that he’s fully fit now. We have started the season very well and he has been a big part of that. We all know what a character he is.”

The centre-half added: “He is looking dangerous, like he was before he went [in 2012]. He has been massive for us, led by example at Shrewsbury and got a vital goal for us. Who knows how long he can play on for? That’s for the club and Didier to decide. Diego (Costa) has been playing the majority of the games up till now but Didier is fit and sharp.”

Drogba was not expected to have as much of role as he is currently seen as third choice striker since joining Mourinho's squad. Injuries to Costa and Loic Remy has guaranteed him a run in the team

Chelsea face QPR in a London derby on Saturday afternoon and Drogba will no doubtless be looking to add to his recent tally of goals.
