Drogba makes Stamford Bridge Comeback
Cote d’Ivoire striker Didier Drogba has completed his Chelsea comeback by featuring at Stamford Bridge once again.
Chelsea completed their ominous start to the Premier League season by dispatching Leicester City 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Goals by newboy Diego Costa and Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard gave the Pensioners the victory, although Jose Mourinho’s men weren’t as convincing as they were in their EPL opener against Burnley.
The Foxes defended resiliently and had chances themselves to open the scoring.
One of the biggest cheers of the evening was reserved for Didier Drogba, who made his Stamford Bridge return, playing in West London as a Chelsea player, for the first time in over two years.
The Ivorian replaced Diego Costa, making his home debut, to a standing ovation—the 36-year-old completing a euphoric afternoon for the Blues.
African pair Jeffrey Schlupp (Ghana) and Riyad Mahrez (Algeria) featured for the visitors, but there was no game time for John Obi Mikel, who began on the bench for the second consecutive match.
