Tottenham fans will love these comments from Didier Drogba about their bitter rivals
By Amir Mir
Didier Drogba has jokingly told his current club Phoenix Rising that he will be returning to Chelsea to score against Arsenal again, with the duo set to meet in the FA Cup final.
The 39-year-old had a fantastic record against the Gunners, scoring 15 goals in 15 matches against Arsene Wenger’s side when wearing Blue.
Arsenal saw off the threat of Manchester City on Sunday afternoon as they beat them 2-1 after extra time at Wembley to seal a place in the final against Chelsea on May 27.
Despite Tottenham getting knocked out of the semi-final stages of the cup competition, they will love these comments from Drogba, who couldn’t help but jokingly poke fun at their bitter rivals.
“Dear Pheonix Rising,” Drogba wrote on his personal Twitter account. “I’ll be off on loan with Chelsea for two days, 26th/27th May, just to make it 17/17 against Arsenal.”

It has been a relatively poor campaign for Arsenal this season as they are on course to finishing outside of the top four for the first team in over two decades.
Furthermore, there is the chance that Mauricio Pochettino’s team will finish above them this season, with the duo set to meet at White Hart Lane at the end of the month.
Nonetheless, Drogba, who scored against the Gunners during a pre-season friendly in the summer, lifted four Premier League titles during his time at Stamford Bridge.
He will be hoping his former team can see off the threat of Tottenham, who are currently four points behind them in the table.
The London duo will be in league action in midweek when Chelsea welcome Southampton to the Bridge, with their neighbours travelling to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace.
