Drogba targets Chelsea for Premier League and Champions League double

Didier Drogba will be going all out to fire Chelsea to a first Premier League and UEFA Champions League double. The Ivorian overtook Jimmy Greaves as the Blues' all-time leading goalscorer when notching a hat-trick in the 6-0 romp over West Brom on Saturday.

Drogba, who scored 37 goals in all competitions last season, now sits two goals ahead of Greaves with 134 strikes to his name.

The 32-year-old told The Sun: "Why not score 40? But I'd rather score 20 goals and win the Champions League and Premier League.

"It's not really about my performance, it's more about what we're going to win this season.

"Jimmy Greaves is a big legend here, so I'm really proud.

"It's really nice to know there's a big difference to when I came here, when I was struggling to adapt to English football.

"It is just a good feeling to be among all these big players, big names and still have a chance to go past them.

"If people talk about me in 40 years, I'll be really happy. It's nice for your kids to know that people speak about you in a good way and that you made history for the club."
