Didier Drogba remains a dangerous player who continues to haunt Arsenal, Arsene Wenger said after the 38-year-old scored against the Gunners yet again.
The former Chelsea star entered Thursday’s MLS All-Star Game with a remarkable scoring record of 15 goals in 16 games against Arsenal, and he was on target again with a goal on the stroke of half-time.

Chose promise, chose due.
Didier Drogba souhaitait tourmenter son ancien coéquipier à Chelsea, le gardien Petr Čech, au Match des étoiles AT&T de la MLS 2016 contre le club anglais Arsenal. C’est ce qu’il a fait, jeudi soir, en inscrivant le seul but des Étoiles de la MLS, qui se sont cependant inclinées par la marque de 2-1.
SAN JOSE, Calif. – It may have been “just a friendly,” but that didn’t stop the tackles from flying in the 2016 AT&T MLS All-Star Game between Major League Soccer’s best and English powerhouse Arsenal.
The first half in particular saw a couple strong challenges from both sides, most notably a pair from Arsenal defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin on the MLS All-Stars’ Kellyn Acostaand Laurent Ciman. The challenge on Acosta, which sent the FC Dallas defender off the field for treatment, particularly drew the scorn of MLS All-Star head coach Dominic Kinnear in his postgame press conference.
SAN JOSE, Calif. — For much of the second half of the 2016 AT&T MLS All-Star Game, it seemed like if anyone was going to keep things from going to penalty kicks immediately after 90 minutes, it would be the hosts. Sebastian Giovinco had forced a strong save just after intermission, and Chris Wondolowski missed a glorious chance in the 82nd minute.
SAN JOSE, Calif. — Even an ocean away from the English Premier League, former London derby nemesis Didier Drogba continues to haunt Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.
Drogba’s tally is now up to an impressive 16 goals in 17 all-time matches against the Gunners after his latest strike in first-half stoppage time gave the MLS side a momentary equalizer in Thursday’s 2-1 loss to Arsenal at the 2016 AT&T MLS All-Star Game.
