Didier Drgoba Dropped for FA Cup Tie at Southend

Didier Drogba's Chelsea future is hanging in the balance after he was dropped for the Blues FA Cup replay at Southend.

The 30-year-old striker has been left out of the side following a disappointing performance in the 3-0 loss at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Blues boss Luiz Felipe Scolari admitted if players don't perform, they won't play.

He told BBC Sport: "All the players have had their chance. I have given every player at least five or six games to impress."

"I will give them their chance and I need answers."

Drogba has been constantly linked with a move to Inter Milan to rejoin former boss Jose Mourinho and the Ivorian Coast international has been a shadow of the player he was last season.

This season Drogba has netted just one league goal in 16 appearances for the 2006-07 champions.

Meanwhile, in an animated-as-ever press conference, Scolari was questioned about the security of his position.

After a long pause, the former Brazil manager said, "You need to ask the board."
