Chelsea smashed London rivals Tottenham yesterday, with a 3-0 triumph against the North London side at Stamford Bridge.
Early on, they struggled. It looked like, following the Everton performance at the weekend, that Tottenham had finally clicked under Mauricio Pochettino.
Harry Kane struck the bar early on, if that had crept in, who knows what the final score might have been.
But a man pivotal in ending that early dominance has now been speaking about the early struggles.
Drogba admitted Tottenham's early dominance in an interview with Chelsea's official website, stating:
"It was not easy because they [Spurs] dominated the early part of the match. We then showed our efficiency better than in the previous match against Sunderland.
"It’s a derby, it’s important to win and to continue with three points because other title rivals, like Man City, Man United and Arsenal, won as well."
