Chelsea's Drogba warns Barcelona: We're better than 2009 team

Chelsea matchwinner Didier Drogba was proud of the performance for their shock Champions League win over Barcelona. The result helps to avenge Chelsea's controversial defeat to the same opposition at this stage of the competition in 2009, after which Drogba collected a four-match ban - reduced to three on appeal - for his foul-mouthed reaction in front of a television camera.

And the Ivory Coast international told ITV1: "I think we've learnt. We've improved from three years ago, we didn't concede a goal.

"We are happy because the result is a good one, now we'll go there to try to score another and qualify."
