Chelsea star looking forward to Arsenal clash

Drogba would be keen to face the Gunners as they are ‘one of his favourite teams’.

“I love playing big games and I love playing against Arsenal,” Ivory Coast striker Drogba told Sky Sports News.

“I always say that Arsenal is one of my favourite teams.

“When I was playing in France, Arsenal was an example for us because there were all these French players who used to play in the French league and went abroad to play for Arsenal with a French manager.

“So to play against them for me means a lot.”

“I don’t think we can afford to lose a second game, especially against Arsenal,” he added.

“People have to know, and we know, that we’re going to lose some games this season.

“But again, it’s always good to win, it’s always better to win.”
