Didier Drogba has told Goal that it must be more than luck that sees him continue to score against Arsenal.

The striker was a menace to the Gunners during his time in the Premier League as he continually shined against them while playing for Chelsea. 

He departed Stamford Bridge with 15 goals against Arsene Wenger’s side but added to that tally on Friday evening.

He scored for the MLS All-Stars as the two sides clashed in America, taking his tally to 16 goals in 16 games against Arsenal, an impressive tally in any regard.

And asked if he felt fortunate to find himself scoring against them once again, Drogba says it must not be down to luck any more.

"I don't know, I don't know, I want to say that I'm lucky but when you score 16 goals against them I don't think it's luck no more,” he told Goal.

The striker has also admitted that it was fun to find himself scoring past former teammate Petr Cech in the game.

The duo were teammates at Chelsea, winning the Premier League and Champions League together over the years.

This game was the first time they have met as rivals though, and Drogba says he will have fun with Cech about scoring against him, although the Czech Republic star has already had his say.

"I hate losing. So for fun, I will have fun with Petr because I scored. But he already killed me and said 'This time I give you the goal',” added Drogba.
