Drogba: This Chelsea always come good when it counts

Chelsea ace Didier Drogba feels confident going into their Champions League quarterfinal against Benfica.

The Blues face Benfica on the back of their amazing triumph over Napoli.

Drogba said: "Football! Football and Chelsea - that's what it was.

"There are teams who you know can do it, whatever the challenge - even if they lost by five or six away.

"There are a few teams that you know can do it in those situations and Chelsea is one of them. With the players we have and the mentality we have here to fight - and fight until the last minute - we can do anything.

"I believe that's why we've had these moments in so many seasons, because we all believe we can do it and when we do something, we do it as a team, as a group.

"We have started to believe a bit more in ourselves and there is a little bit more confidence now. The only thing that can change a dressing room is winning games and going on a good run of results.

"Even if you have the best atmosphere in the dressing room to begin with, when you lose games everyone will be down. That's just human. However, when you win games, everything is better.

"Now we want to win again and give ourselves confidence for the coming weeks."
