Drogba has sights set on quadruple

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba admits achieving the quadruple would be an extremely difficult feat, but has refused to rule it out.

The Blues have made an excellent start to the campaign and currently sit pretty at the top of the Premier League having won five from five.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men also comfortably triumphed 4-1 in their UEFA Champions League opener against MSK Zilina last week and they host Newcastle in the Carling Cup on Wednesday.

Drogba has been his usual formidable self leading the line so far this term, and the 32-year-old Ivorian says a quadruple is not out of the question.

"It’s very difficult, this is a very difficult thing to achieve," he told Sky Sports News.

"Why not? If we do it it will be an amazing season. I think to keep the title will be difficult, even if people see us as one of the best teams with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.

"But it will be difficult this season. That’s why we’re here – we want to prove we are the champions and we want to keep the Premier League trophy."

Drogba was the Premier League’s leading scorer last season with 29 goals to his name and he has already found the back of the net five times in the top-flight so far this term.
