Didier Drogba has taken a dig at Arsenal following the Gunners’ emphatic 3-0 win over Chelsea on Saturday, albeit in a joking manner.
The Chelsea legend was a constant thorn in the flesh of Arsenal when he played for the Blues, scoring 15 goals in the 16 times he face the Gunners in Chelsea colours, and has even scored several times against Arsene Wenger’s side when playing for other teams other than Chelsea.
Following the win on Saturday, Arsenal winger Theo Walcott had taken to Twitter to celebrate the victory in which he also scored a goal, but not have expected to be trolled by Drogba.
The Gunners’ winger posted a photo of him celebrating his goal with a caption of the scoreline and several smiley faces, but Drogba responded by saying: “Congrats on your win bro @theowalcott, but it is easy for the mouses to dance when the cats aren’t there,” referring to himself as the cat that tormented the mouse, which would be Arsenal.
Meanwhile, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Walcott’s recent fine form is a result of an improved attitude, after struggling to make an impact in a tough 18 month spell.
“I believe the change in Walcott is his attitude this season. He’s ready to fight, to commit, and you know straight away he gets the crowd behind him.
“A Theo Walcott of that stature is a completely different player.”
