Chelsea striker Didier Drogba denies the squad is over the hill.

The likes of Drogba, Frank Lampard and Nicolas Anelka are all over 30, but the striker insists their fitness is as good as ever.

"People mention that we are an old side, but being 32 or 33 now is not the same as being 32 or 33 ten years ago," he told the News of the World.

"Things have changed a lot and a professional football player now has a very good life in terms of health and training.

"There are a few more years in me and this team."
