Didier Drogba wants to win fifth FA Cup with Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has set his sights on winning a fifth FA Cup trophy ahead of the Third Round clash against Watford tomorrow (Sunday).

The Ivorian legend enjoyed eight great years at Stamford Bridge between 2004 and 2012, winning three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and a Champions League trophy in his initial spell with the club.

After spending a couple of years away from Stamford Bridge, Drogba is back in west London and playing a cameo role behind Spanish striker Diego Costa this season.

The goal machine is set to be rested by manager Jose Mourinho against the Hornets however, and the 36-year-old could be in-line for a rare start. Loic Remy is also an option for 'the Special One'.

Either way, Drogba is hopeful that Chelsea progress into the fourth round draw, which takes place on Monday night, and he insists the club want to make the trip to Wembley and win the trophy once again.

"We have to do it together. We want to achieve something great and I think that is why we have played well this season," Drogba told the Blues' official website. 

"I hope at the end of it we will be able to say together we won this trophy, this trophy and this trophy. And yes, I would love to win another FA Cup. I would love to win it for the club and for the fans as well. 

"I know the feeling the fans have when we get to a final. We share the same feeling. It would be nice to go back to Wembley together again and make history."

Hazard rested

Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard is also expected to be rested alongside Costa, whilst Brazilian midfielder Ramires could start after stepping up his recovery off the bench against Spurs on New Year's Day.

Chelsea will be looking to bounce back following the 5-3 defeat in north London, and that loss could see Mourinho keep changes to a minimum. Kurt Zouma will be hoping for an opportunity at the back though, whilst Petr Cech is expected to start in goal.
