Essien: Drogba better than Man Utd's Ronaldo

Michael Essien rates Chelsea teammate Didier Drogba as a far better player than Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo.

He said: "I would make us favourites for the title ahead of United. Last season they depended a lot on Ronaldo, who was sensational.

"But I don't know how he will play this season because runs of good form don't go on forever.

"I would always pick Drogba over Ronaldo - he is a good player but he does not score as many goals."
