You would have got short odds on Didier Drogba scoring for MLS All-Stars against Arsenal on Thursday night.

The former Chelsea forward always - always - seems to score against the Gunners.

And so Arsene Wenger must have held his head in hands when, in the second minute of first-half stoppage time, up popped Drogba to score his 16th - yes, 16th - goal against his team.

Drogba bundled the ball home at the third attempt to put MLS All-Stars back on level terms following Joel Campbell’s early penalty.

However, it was Arsenal who won the match thanks to a late winner from Chuba Akpom.

Drogba asked why he always scores v Arsenal

“I wanna ask you: why are you always scoring against Arsenal every single time?” ArsenalFanTV presenter Robbie asked the Ivory Coast icon.

“I don’t know,” Drogba replied after thinking about the question. “When you score once, you always want to score, and that’s the experience I have when I play - not just against Arsenal.”

Robbie replied: “You left the Premier League too early!”

To which Drogba, with a cheeky smile, responded: “You want me to come back? Speak to Arsene!”

Drogba: I don't think it's luck

Drogba said something similar to the official MLS website after the match.

Asked about his incredible record against the Gunners, Drogba said: "I don't know, I don't know, I want to say that I'm lucky but when you score 16 goals against them I don't think it's luck no more."

Drogba won't be returning to Europe

There’s little chance of Drogba returning to Europe, despite the fact he’s still scoring goals on a regular basis in America.

The striker turned 38 in March and next season could be his last in professional football.

Drogba is expected to become a coach after he retires - he was linked with a coaching role at Chelsea when Guus Hiddink took over the Blues on an interim basis last season - but for the time being he’ll continue scoring goals, especially when Arsenal come to town.

Wenger must be sick of the sight of him.
