Chelsea star Drogba: We have Premier League running scared

Chelsea ace Didier Drogba says they have the Premier League running scared.

Carlo Ancelotti's men kicked off their defence of the Premier League title with back-to-back 6-0 wins over West Brom and Wigan.

They clinched the crown last term by thrashing Stoke 7-0 and Wigan 8-0 in their final two home games of the season - having already stuck seven goals past both Sunderland and Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season.

And hitman Drogba, 32, insisted: "We create such a sensation of fear in our opponents' penalty area - and that really helps us score.

"We have developed a perfect system. We practise so many different situations thousands of times in training so it becomes automatic in games.

"It may look easy - but the secret is work, work and more work each day.

"And, while Ancelotti is an Italian coach, we do not play a defensive Italian style.

"That is how we were successful last season so there is no reason to change."
