After victory over Stoke, Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari was asked if he intends to sell Didier Drogba after again leaving him out of his squad.

In a clear reference to Manchester City's alleged interest in captain Terry, Scolari replied: "Maybe some clubs want John Terry. Ask John if he wants to go - 'no'. Why? Because he loves Chelsea.

"When you love Chelsea you stay here and finish. If clubs want to pay then maybe. A loan or no money - no! But spend money, okay.

"Didier is not the only man who plays in Chelsea. The money they must pay is for everybody.

"It is not my business to sell or buy, it is the business of Peter Kenyon (the club's chief executive). I don't think we will buy now we have lost Joe Cole for the season. I follow what the club decide.

"Today it was important to win because we got three points. We did not concede from a set-piece."
