Drogba wants more of the same when Chelsea meet Man Utd

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba hailed his side's character during their Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid but knows they will probably need to dig even deeper when they take on Manchester United at Stamford Bridge this weekend. "It was difficult because Atletico needed to win, they gave everything. But getting through is the main thing. We controlled the game and maybe we could have played better, but it was a difficult game," said Drogba, who has now netted 12 times in all competitions this season.

"More than the goals we've scored, it's the character of the team we showed. At 1-0 down we kept playing and we tried to come back stronger, and that's good.

"We need character (against United), it's going to be another fantastic game, maybe with more intensity and a different chip (style of play).

"We have to be better than today."
