Chelsea No2 Wilkins reveals Drogba heart-to-heart

Chelsea assistant boss Ray Wilkins was happy to name Didier Drogba in his starting XI for last night's FA Cup win over Watford.

He said: "I had a talk with Didier, a little one-to-one. As soon as the board said I would be taking this game, I had a gut feeling about Didier.

"It's been a difficult season for him, he's been in and out. It has been tough for him but he is the type of guy who I thought would work better from the start than coming off the bench.

"He did respond and it was nice to see the big man back. He is a delight to have in the dressing room because he is extremely vocal."
