The Chelsea striker Didier Drogba carried on his fantastic record against the Gunners yesterday as he scored twice in the 3-0 demolition of Arsene Wenger’s Gunners, and explained that he liked playing against Arsenal because of their French fan base.
“It just may be lucky,” Drogba said.
“I don’t know if it is something special but it is always nice to challenge yourself and see what you can do against players like Gallas, Vermaelen and Fabregas.
“I like to play against Arsenal because they used to be the team people supported in France because of all the French players there, so I was supporting them as well, but since I am Chelsea I do the job for my team and I am really delighted when we win like this.
“Especially against this type of team, they love to play, they love to keep the ball and you have to be patient and do everything well when you have the ball.”
“The first 20 to 25 minutes were difficult for us and Arsenal had control of the ball, but we defended very hard and strong and when we had our chance we took it.”
“Ashley Cole’s cross was fantastic, he couldn’t put it better and I was a bit lucky to score the first goal. I think we then controlled the game.
“It was a bit difficult for me in the first 20 minutes because I hadn’t played for two weeks before the game against Porto.
“In the second half against Arsenal I was feeling much better, I could run and hold the ball and I played a bit more physically. I think that really helped the team.”
“Defensively we were strong and when we were attacking, we attacked with desire and belief and this is why we won and why we are top of the league. Physically and mentally we are strong and we know how to go through difficult moments when the game is hard.”
“We sent a big message to the teams in England that we are top of the league and the statistics are important because as a striker, people ask you to score goals,” Drogba concluded.
