Didier Drogba – CHELSEA vs. Liverpool FC (September 2006)

Didier Drogba won two Premier League Golden Boot prizes during his exceptional time at Chelsea which saw him win all of the major trophies, including four league titles and the UEFA Champions League in 2012.

Six years earlier, he scored one of his finest goals in a Chelsea shirt and it was the winner in a tight early season contest between the Blues and Liverpool FC. The game was goalless approaching half-time. With his back to goal, Drogba turned instantly, escaping the tightly marked attentions of Jamie Carragher. Swivelling away from the Liverpool defender, he produced a first-time shot on the turn that left Pepe Reina completely rooted to the spot. It was a sensational piece of individual brilliance from the Ivorian.

Although Chelsea missed out on retaining their Premier League title, Drogba scored winning goals in two cup finals and claimed his first Golden Boot in 2006-2007 off the back of amazing moments of skill like this winning goal against the Merseysiders.
