The Chelsea striker Didier Drogba was a bit frustrated at being left on the bench against Man Utd on Saturday, but was confident that the team would win, whoever played.
He is determined for the team to stay at the top of the league, and he thinks to win it this season will be even more special than when they won it twice under Jose Mourinho.
“It would mean more for us to win the league now having waited four years to win it back again,” explained the striker.
“There are still five games to go and a lot of things can happen. But we’re going to do everything to stay there and win this league.”
“Maybe you don’t need to score a lot – just the important goals – and maybe this one was one of those,” said the Ivory Coast international, who has now netted 25 times in the Premier League this term.
“I’ve scored only twice against them, once in the FA Cup final and now this. It’s nice to score against them because they have one of the world’s best defences.
“We’re proud of what we did, the desire was so good. This was a very big result and we showed we are a good team and deserved to win.
“But we know we’re not there yet. All I know is we want to win it a lot, to prove to people the team we are.
“I’ve always believed we could do it even though we lost points last month.
“We have some important games coming but we are more determined now.”

“Going out of the Champions League was not a nice feeling but it helps when you’re out to win the league because there are so many games. It means you can stay fresh,” he continued.
“To come to United thinking we were going to win shows we’re determined to take this title. We really want it.”
It certainly looked like that on Saturday. If Chelsea plays like that every week no-one can stop them!
