Chelsea captain John Terry has lauded Didier Drogba’s contribution to the Blues over the season, despite the star striker not dominating the forward line like he has in seasons past.

"It is difficult for a striker because if they don't score goals then people jump on their back, similar to how they are with Fernando [Torres], but especially with Didier,” Terry said.


"What he brings to the side with his passion in the dressing room and on the field, and his link-up play, means he shouldn't be judged just on goals.”

Drogba, an Côte d'Ivoire international, has scored 10 league goals for Chelsea this season, and although that still puts him sixth on the Barclays Premier League top scorers list, Anelka currently has an edge at Stamford Bridge with 16 goals so far including seven in the Champions League.

But Terry believes Drogba will come into form this month after being the sole scorer in Chelsea’s draw with Stoke on the weekend.

"What a good goal he scored against Stoke and he is firing on all cylinders, hopefully just at the right time for us,” the Chelsea skipper said.
