Chelsea legend Didier Drogba wishes Petr Cech well on Stamford Bridge return for Arsenal

Petr Cech Arsenal

The former Chelsea striker believes Cech will get a great reception from the home fans this afternoon.

Arsenal take on Chelsea in the early afternoon kick off in the Premier League today. The game at Stamford Bridge should certainly be an interesting one for The Gunners keeper Petr Cech. The custodian is of course a Chelsea legend. He spent 11 years with Chelsea after joining from French side Rennes in 2004, before being usurped as number one stopper by Belgian talent Thibaut Courtois.

That saw him decide to make a leap from the club and join London rivals Arsenal, where he was guaranteed regular first-team football.

Today he travels back to his old home and it will certainly be interesting to see just what type of reception he receives from the Chelsea faithful.

One man expecting an overwhelmingly positive reaction is Didier Drogba. The striker, who himself left Chelsea this summer after a second spell at the club, is currently playing for Toronto in MLS and was so often the scourge of Arsenal during his time in English football. However, he keeps abreast of things at his old club and took to Instagram this morning to wish his old friend well...

Chelsea fans will undoubtedly give Cech the reception he deserves this afternoon. They will just hope however that he does not come back to haunt them.
