Drogba applauds Liverpool spirit

Chelsea forward Didier Drogba has lavished praise on vanquished rivals Liverpool following Tuesday’s epic Champions League encounter at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues were given an almighty fright before progressing to the semi-finals of the Champions League, 7-5 on aggregate.

Drogba hauled his side back into the tie with a goal shortly after the break and he feels it was a pivotal moment with Liverpool in the driving seat.

“I think my goal was really important,” he told Setanta Sports News. “After that they were playing more long balls and were not so confident like they were in the first half. We could see this so we pushed and scored another goal.

“Liverpool are a fantastic team and play with no fear. They did everything to try and go through.

”It takes two teams to make big games like this and we saw two great teams.”
