Napoli v Chelsea: Match Preview

21 February 2012 05:25
Didier Drogba says it is about time his Chelsea team mates start to take some responsibility.

'I think we are all responsible for the results. Chelsea Football Club is responsible for the results, and I think we all have to play our game. The players have to play their game.'

The Ivory Coast striker added: "The good thing in football is that there's always another game to change the bad moment, the difficult moment."

Defender Gary Cahill could start tonight in place of the injured John Terry.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas will be relieved to have both Michael Essien and Ramires available for selection in midfield along with Frank Lampard.

Ashley Cole is also expected to miss out, while up front Daniel Sturridge and Juan Mata could start behind Fernando Torres who is still desperately trying to find goals.

Napoli boss Walter Mazzari has a virtually full strength squad to choose from ahead of the clash in Naples.

Star talents Marek Hamsik, Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi are all expected to start.

Uruguay international Cavani scored twice to send Manchester City out of the Champions League early, and the Italians will hope he can do the same again.
