Didier Drogba wants Chelsea to defeat both Manchester United and Arsenal in their upcoming matches to emphatically secure the Premier League title.
The Blues, who maintained their lead at the top of the log with a narrow 1-0 win over QPR this past weekend, welcome United to Stamford Bridge on Saturday before traveling to Arsenal the following week.
Chelsea have led the table since the opening weekend of the season and require only 11 points from their final seven games to claim the title.
They can afford not to win their matches against the Red Devils and the Gunners, but the former Ivory Coast international has other ideas.
“We have a good lead again – we have kept our distance from Arsenal,” said Drogba, who made his first start for Chelsea since February in the win at QPR.
“We have been top of the league since the beginning and now we are waiting for the Manchester United game.
“We are playing at home so we are going to do everything to win it. These are the big games we have to win if we want to be champions.”
Chelsea’s match against Man United at Stamford Bridge will kick-off at 18h30 CAT on Saturday.
