A player who was looking destined to leave Chelsea in the summer after falling down the pecking order has delivered a string of brilliant individual displays to secure himself a regular first-team spot.
Drogba had been in poor form this season and looked a shadow of his former self. Moreover, with new manager Andre Villas-Boas looking to inject youth into the aged squad, it meant Drogba spent most of his time on the bench. With contract talks coming to an end without fruitful results, Drogba was expected to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of this season.
But after two stunning performances, the Ivorian has already shunted Torres back to the bench. His performances have led Chelsea to reconsider his contract extension and extend his stay at West London.
In the following slides we celebrate the temperamental striker's return to form with a look into his top five goals for Chelsea over the years.
