Drogba came on in the 67th minute and scored in the 83rd during Chelsea's 2-1 loss at Newcastle on Saturday.

Drogba has been in very good form of late, scoring three goals and assisting on two others in his last four matches in all competitions. However, with Diego Costa fully fit, Drogba's playing time could be limited in upcoming Premier League games.

With Diego Costa suspended, Drogba could get the start Wednesday against Tottenham.

Manager Jose Mourinho refused to tip his hand Tuesday about whether Drogba or Loic Remy would get the start in Costa's absence, though either choice would be a solid fantasy option at a price significantly lower than Costa's in salary cap formats.

Drogba, starting in place of the injured Diego Costa (hamstring) and Loic Remy (groin), scored in the 53rd minute of Chelsea's 1-1 draw at Manchester United on Sunday.

Drogba headed in a Cesc Fabregas corner kick on a play when he looked 10 years younger skying into the air to meet the ball and bang it home. Drogba has now scored in back-to-back matches after converting a penalty against Maribor in the Champions League on Tuesday. Up next is a home match against QPR, though if Costa or Remy are fit, they will likely start.
