Premier League title will give better feeling than Chelsea's 2006 triumph: Drogba

London, Apr 5 (ANI): Ace striker Didier Drogba reckons winning the Premier League title this year would give him a better feeling than Chelsea's 2006 triumph.

Manchester United has lifted the trophy for three successive seasons since the Blues retained the title four years ago.

Drogba, 32, said: "It would mean more for us to win the league now having waited four years to win it back again."

"There are still five games to go and a lot of things can happen. But we're going to do everything to stay there and win this league," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

Drogba came off the bench to score the decisive goal in Saturday's 2-1 win at Old Trafford and put Chelsea two points clear at the top.

"Maybe you don't need to score a lot - just the important goals - and maybe this one was one of those. I've scored only twice against them, once in the FA Cup final and now this. It's nice to score against them because they have one of the world's best defences.

"We're proud of what we did, the desire was so good. This was a very big result and we showed we are a good team and deserved to win," Drogba said.

"But we know we're not there yet. All I know is we want to win it a lot, to prove to people the team we are. I've always believed we could do it even though we lost points last month. We have some important games coming but we are more determined now.

"Going out of the Champions League was not a nice feeling but it helps when you're out to win the league because there are so many games. It means you can stay fresh. To come to United thinking we were going to win shows we're determined to take this title. We really want it," Drogba added. (ANI)
