Arsene backs Chelsea to break Drogba's heart: '0-0 is enough!'

Arsenal boss Wenger thinks Chelsea's exemplary defensive record will ensure there are no upsets versus Galatasaray.

Didier Drogba's homecoming has dominated the sports pages of the printed press today, Tuesday, as the Ivorian, currently on the books at Galatasaray, returns to his old stomping ground at Stamford Bridge in order to compete in the second leg of his side's Champions League Round of 16 clash against Chelsea.

According to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, though, it will not be one he will celebrate as, despite fielding questions from the media as to whether he'll express delight should he score against his former club, a 0-0 score could be something Jose Mourinho's Blues look to preserve as, with that result, the West Londoners will progress to the quarter-finals due to the away goal ruling.

"I think we were expecting the draw in Galatasaray versus Chelsea and the away goal puts them in a position as favourites to qualify and with a 0-0 draw [they have enough to go through]," said Wenger to Eurosport ahead of the match-up.

Out of all participants in Premier League football it is Chelsea who have conceded the fewest goals in the season to date, five less than defensively-solid Arsenal.

"They certainly know how to defend and so I say it's 70-30 to Chelsea."
