Chelsea coach Wilkins: We'll be careful with Drogba

Chelsea assistant coach Ray Wilkins says they'll treat Didier Drogba carefully as he regains full fitness. Wilkins said: "Didier put in a fair stint of work. That was a tough afternoon for him, playing against two big guys at the back. "It was extremely physical but he worked very hard. We can't ask for much more than that and it's good that he came through. "We've seen lots of players, like Ronaldo at Manchester United, where Sir Alex Ferguson has given him 60 or 65 minutes. So we will just have to treat Didier with kid gloves.
