Roma make the trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal tonight in a Champions League last 16 1st-leg encounter.

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has set his sights set on the Champions League final ahead of Wednesday night’s last-16 first-leg clash with Juventus.

The 30-year-old Ivory Coast forward admits he is still haunted by memories of last season’s defeat on penalties to Manchester United in the final – a game in which he was shown the red card – and is determined to put that right this term.

“My desire to win this trophy is bigger than ever, having lost twice in the semi-finals and once in the final,” Drogba told L’Equipe.

“It is a difficult competition for us. Memories of Moscow are hard to erase, I still think (about it).

“Our supporters deserve to have won the Champions League and this year we will play the same way to reach the final and this time we will bring the trophy to Stamford Bridge.”
