RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba announced Sunday that he will leave Chelsea to play for another club next season.

Drogba said he wants to play at least one more professional season but feels he needs to go to another club to do that. It was long believed he had played his last match for the Blues before signing last year, and he'll leave Stamford Bridge with another Premier League title. It's unclear where he will go after this, but there will likely be a number of suitors despite his relatively advanced age.

Drogba (ankle) is available off the bench Sunday against Arsenal.

Drogba's placement on the bench is a bit surprising given that Diego Costa (hamstring) and Loic Remy (calf) are both out, as Chelsea will go without a true striker against the Gunners.

Drogba (ankle) will be available for Sunday's match against Arsenal, manager Jose Mourinho said Friday.

Drogba apparently suffered the injury during last weekend's match against Manchester United, though news of the injury didn't emerge until Monday. Loic Remy has been ruled out with a calf injury, and with Diego Costa still very iffy because of a hamstring injury, Drogba could get another start.

Drogba is an injury doubt for Saturday's match at Arsenal because of an ankle injury, The Guardian reports.

Drogba has started the last two games, with Diego Costa (hamstring) and Loic Remy (calf) both sidelined with injuries. Remy was reportedly close to playing last weekend against Manchester United, though he wasn't able to pass fit enough to even make the bench. Manager Jose Mourinho has opened up the possibility that Costa could return to face the Gunners, though that would be nearly two weeks before his original estimated recovery timetable.

Drogba took two shots, though neither landed on goal, while completing just 46.4 percent of his passes during Chelsea's 1-0 win over Manchester United on Saturday.

Drogba got his second consecutive start, with Diego Costa (hamstring) and Loic Remy (calf) out with injuries, but he looked nothing like the Drogba of old Saturday. Remy is reportedly close to a return, while Costa has an outside shot of returning next Saturday against Arsenal, so Drogba's starting opportunities may be over.
