Didier Drogba’s awesome form will be counted on today as Chelsea play their final Premier League game against Wigan Athletic at the Stanford Bridge stadium. Today’s game is a must win for Chelsea as arch rival Manchester United who are playing Stoke are on their tail with just a point difference.
A win at the Bridge will secure the league for Chelsea but If they lose and Manchester United defeat Stoke at The Old Trafford, then the league goes to the Red Devils (Man United).
But the Standford Bridge fatefuls only have one man to finish the job for them, Didier Yves Drogba. The Ivorian national star’s dominance on the field is a threat to opposing team and with a good form this season, Drogba’s terrifying physical strength has helped the Blues secure the position they are at the top of the table right now but only need three points to confirm them Champion.
Chelsea has beaten the other top three fiercest leaders; Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool at home and away and hoping to cap it up with a win over Wigan. Carlo Ancelotti, Chelsea’s boss knows Wigan is a small team but believes today’s game is crucial, the one they have to put their lives on the line for and he won’t care how they will do it. He said: “No no, we just have to win. We have to score more goals than Wigan. We are not interested in the other records”.
Though Chelsea have tasted defeat in the hands of Wigan before, Drogba’s presence at the starting line today means the Ivorian with his team mates need to win today’s crucial game. He has not once, not twice, dragged Chelsea up from slipping and has displayed a lot of character on the field that has helped the Blues reach where they are now. “Drogba is stronger than ever. If he scores another goal this season, already with 33 in his cap, it will be the most prolific year of his career, with a far better goal-to-game ratio than he ever achieved under Mourinho,” commented Dan Jones, popular football pundits.
This season is one of the most contested seasons of the Premier League history with the title decider on the last day of the season, today. If Chelsea win, they end a three year wait for the Premier League title and with the FA Cup final against Portsmouth yet to be played, Stanford Bridge worshipers know the season is looking rosy.
