Gary Cahill says Chelsea veteran Didier Drogba can play a big part for the Blues this season.

The 36-year-old striker has scored against Maribor, bitter rivals Manchester United and League Two outfit Shrewsbury Town over the past week.

We’ve started the season well and he’s been a big part in that

And Chelsea centre-half Cahill heaped praise on the Ivory Coast international, adding that Drogba is getting back to full fitness.

“In the last two games he is fully fit now, he’s looking sharp and dangerous – exactly like he was when he went. He was massive for us on Tuesday and he got a vital goal,” Cahill said.

“Who knows how long he can go on for? That’s for the club and Didier to decide but at this moment we’ve started the season well and he’s been a big part in that.

“What a character he is off the pitch. Obviously Diego is playing the majority of the games but Didier is getting back to match sharpness. Loic (Remy) scored but came off so to get them all back fit and scoring goals is vital for us.”
