Michael Owen has been featured in a new documentary that focuses on the art of scoring goals and has given an opinion of Didier Drogba that I wondered if you, the football fan reading this post agrees?

We have seen plenty of legendary goalscorers in the Premier League throughout it's existence and in particular those that played here before Drogba's arrival. Alan Shearer, Andrew Cole, Eric Cantona, Robbie Fowler, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Les Ferdinand to name but a few. All of what have scored over 100 Premier League goals and have made a massive impact on football in England. 

However, according to Michael Owen, who was a class act in his own right scoring 150 goals, has stated that things changed with Didier Drogba arrived at Chelsea in 2004. He said:

"When I was growing up it was always two centre forwards, And it was always about how you could work together, how you could link together as a big man and little man.

And I think the introduction, in my eyes anyway, of Didier Drogba at Chelsea, when Jose Mourinho played him upfront on his own, got a lot of people thinking, 'We can get one big man to do a bit of everything'." - Source: The Mirror

Didier Drogba 100% changed the way we played the game in England because, as Owen says, he could do everything whether it was make runs in behind, drop off deep to pick up the ball, hold the ball up to bring others into the game or to literally create something from nothing, Drogba had it all.

You look at the names I mentioned in the second paragraph, fantastic strikers in the Premier League who all scored plenty of goals but it's important to note that most played with an additional striker playing next to them or slightly deeper. If anything, when Drogba played alongside an additional striker (Shevchenko) for a single season, he scored 30+ goals because he also knew that he would find space to take full advantage.

Didier Drogba set the benchmark as far as I am concerned not just here at Chelsea but also in the Premier League. Never have we seen someone who could dominate their marker the way he did but at the same time, play off of his marker and kill him with his pace.

Drogba could finish with the best of them, left foot, right foot or with his head and I stand by my opinion that his header to equalise in the Champions League Final in Munich was the best I have ever seen.

I agree with Michael Owen that Didier Drogba changed the way we played the game over in England and in the Premier League. What do you think?
