Chelsea boss Avram Grant has revealed Didier Drogba could be back in action inside three weeks - and expects the striker to be fit for Ivory Coast's African Nations Cup campaign.

"It looks like it will be three weeks," said the Chelsea manager when asked about Drogba's knee op. "I hope he can play before he goes away with the Ivory Coast. First, I want him to feel well but I hope because the operation went well."
