5. Two goal performance vs Arsenal, 2008

The title race was entering the last stretch. Chelsea could ill afford to lose to Arsenal yet found themselves 1-0 down going into the last 15 minutes. It was typical of Drogba to drag the Blues back on his own for an epic comeback.


4. Wonder goal vs Liverpool, 2006

This goal takes your breath away. Jamie Carragher’s reaction says it all.


3. Goal vs Everton, 2006

In a record breaking season, for Drogba, this dramatic late winner sealed a 3-2 victory at Goodison Park.


2. Equalizer vs Bayern Munich, 2012

All looked lost when the man for the big occasion showed up yet again with a header the difficulty of which is underrated.


1. Penalty winner vs Bayern Munich

The only goal that could supersede the equalizer in the same game. Cue the best moment in the history of the club.
