Chelsea star relishing weekend action

Didier Drogba has told that he cannot wait for Grand Slam Sunday. In what promises to be the a pivotal weekend in the Premier League title race, the top four clash on Sunday as Manchester United entertain Liverpool and Arsenal travel to Chelsea, with both games live and exclusive on Sky Sports 1. "It is going to be some weekend," the Chelsea striker told "The games are too close to call but our experience will be needed on Sunday."


Drogba admits that Arsenal will pose a big challenge to The Blues, and is anticipating a tense encounter. He said: "Arsenal are a wonderful team with the ball, but we are very powerful. "At this time of ths season you won't see any big scores between the teams because all the games are now pressure games. "Hopefully we will come out stronger from the big encounters." The Ivory Coast international is looking forward to facing former Chelsea team-mate William Gallas and compatriot Kolo Toure. "Hopefully I will score on Sunday," he continued. "I will be against my mates but they also know it will not be easy for them. "William knows he is coming to the cauldron of Stamford Bridge, like with Ashley Cole [at Arsenal], he will be booed. But they are top players and I will need help from the crowd to unsettle William."
