Chelsea's Drogba scoffs at Liverpool threat

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has scoffed at the threat of Liverpool ahead of tonight's Champions League semifinal.

Drogba said: "I'm not in the least bit worried about them.

"They may have beaten us in the last two Euro semis but this Chelsea team is perfectly capable of winning at Anfield.

"And how absolutely beautiful that would be!"

Drogba insists Avram Grant's Blues hold all the aces. He added: "The key is to get hold of the tie at Anfield from the start.

"And I think it's also vital that this semi will be decided at Stamford Bridge, which neither of our two previous defeats to Liverpool have been.

"Their manager Rafa Benitez is clever at putting out a team which is fresh for the Champions League because they have such a big squad. Just look at the way they were almost out at 2-2 against Arsenal in the quarter-final. But they shocked everyone with two goals in six minutes.

"But we've been visualising lifting the trophy for so many seasons. now we believe we can make it reality."
