Drogba sets sights on double

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is hoping to celebrate a double of his own on Sunday after setting his sights on winning the award for the Premier League's leading scorer.

Drogba is hoping the Blues will be crowned champions at the expense of Manchester United with victory over Wigan Athletic at Stamford Bridge in Sunday's final round of games.

Meanwhile, the Ivory Coast striker is also keen to finish the season as the league's leading scorer and heads into the weekend level on 26 goals with United's Wayne Rooney.

"To finish above Rooney in the scorers' table would be the cherry on the cake," he said after being named Chelsea's player of the season for the first time.

"Three years ago, I finished above him and we didn't win the league. There was something missing.

"But if there is a penalty to take, I have already agreed with (Frank) Lampard that I will take it."

Meanwhile, Drogba has welcomed reports that Chelsea could launch a £40million move for Bayern Munich's France star Franck Ribery during the summer.

"I know Franck from my time at Guingamp," he told The Sun."If he comes to Chelsea, I will be happy.

"He is hungry. I like hungry players."
