Once again Didier Drogba is the focus of media attention in interviews published after the win over FC Copenhagen. This time Drogba is featured speaking of the Champions League draw later today and the level of expectation at the club. He said:
"At this stage of the competition whoever you get you have to deal with it and try to go through. If we get Barcelona, or Manchester United or Inter Milan. It was great to get to the quarter-finals and now we wait for the draw on Friday.

I think, for a team like Chelsea, we have to be, minimum, in the semi-final every year. Last year we lost against the winners – it was not that we were happy to lose – but it makes things a bit better.

You need to keep trying, so you have learnt from the past. I think it's little details in the Champions League, it's all about details and also we need a little bit of luck to win it. We didn't have it in the last final [against Manchester United in 2008] but you have to do everything to have luck on your side so, hopefully, this time we're going to do it."

Chelsea have come a long way in recent times. So much so that Drogba talks of the minimum expectation level being to reach the semi-final stages. I not so sure that is a realistic view bearing in mind the teams we are up against. I would state Quarter Finals at least and then to see where it takes us. We certainly have the quality to win it, like Drogba says, you need that little bit of luck and so far in this season's competition we have had that.

Let's hope the draw is kind again to us later today!.
