Drogba sends scathing Twitter message to Walcott after Arsenal triumph
By Joe Nelson
Didier Drogba has hit out at Theo Walcott after the England striker took to Twitter to express his joy over beating Chelsea 3-0 on Saturday night.
Chelsea legend Drogba, who currently plies his trade in the MLS with Montreal Impact, teased Walcott with a post expressing that the Chelsea big guns were not in the team to torment the Arsenal players.
“Congrats on your win bro,” Drogba said to Walcott on his personal Twitter account, “but it is easy for the mouses to dance when the cats aren’t there.”

The Gunners opened their account with Alexis Sanchez scoring on his 100th Arsenal appearance, before Walcott finished off a flowing move to make it two moments later.
Mesut Ozil then round off the win just before half time with a splendid counter-attacking goal, in which he released Sanchez, before having the ball returned to him and volleying home for the decisive third.
Drogba was often the bane of the Gunners during his illustrious Chelsea career, scoring a remarkable 16 goals in 17 games against Arsene Wenger’s men.
His haul included two in the League Cup final against the Gunners and an FA Cup Semi Final goal, both in 2-1 wins for the Blues.
The 38-year-old famously scored the winning penalty to win Chelsea the Uefa Champions League against Bayern Munich, cementing his place in history.
