Drogba: Chelsea Have No Fear Of Valencia Trip

By mtn

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba insists they can go to Valencia with confidence of Champions League progress after their 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge this week.

Drogba declared: "There will be no pressure on us in the second leg, the pressure was here when they scored. So now we don't have any pressure.

"It is not the best result but I think we can still do something there.

"As usual we showed good character to come back but the goal Silva scored was unbelievable.

"It was a great goal and a great finish. Valencia playedvery well but I think we again showed our character.

"But you never know it football what can happen. We went to Liverpool two seasons ago in the semifinal and we didn't score."

Drogba's sensational season in front of goal has made him one of the favourites to be named player of the year by his fellow professionals, but he refuses to take all the credit.

"The team help me to score as well so I think it is 50-50. I am giving my best for the team and they are giving everything for me as well," he said.

Chelsea captain John Terry echoed Drogba's views on the team's character, adding that it was their fighting spirit and the striker's nose for goals which helped to keep them in the hunt for Champions League glory.

Terry said: "With Didier scoring goals we are sure we can score a few goals. We just need to keep a clean sheet.

"We scored a great goal and the fighting spirit was just what we needed. We have shown in the Champions League we can go away and go through.

"We need to be on our game and full of confidence and take the game to them."
