BEWARE OF THE DROG By Dan Childs DIDIER DROGBA is the main reason why Arsenal have won just one of their last six clashes against Chelsea and he will not be short of first-goalscorer support when he steps across the white line at Stamford Bridge today. The Ivorian has netted seven goals in his last five appearances against the Gunners and he is the 7-2 favourite to notch today's opening goal and no bigger than 11-10 to score at any time. However, Bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth is not expecting punters to be put off by such prohibitive odds. He said: "People love backing Drogba to score against Arsenal and today is bound to be no different." Drogba should relish the chance of bullying a new-look Gunners defence featuring recent signings Laurent Koscielny and Sebastien Squillaci, but Bet365 are not convinced that he will notch in either of this season's Premier League fixtures between the clubs. They are betting on how many goals Drogba will score over the two matches and make none the 6-4 favourite, with one available at 7-4 and two on offer at 4-1. Bet365 - D Drogba league goals against Arsenal this season: 6-4 none, 7-4 one, 4 two, 10 three, 16 four or more.v Chelsea, page 127
