Didier Drogba

London, Dec 30 - Veteran Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has called on his club to start a new season in the New Year as he predicted that the Premier League title race would go down all the way to the end.

Jose Mourinho's side led the table by nine points last month and seemed set to run away with the Premier League, but only one win in their last four away games has seen Manchester City close the gap to three points.

And the margin would have been down to one without Burnley's stunning comeback at the Etihad Stadium as Chelsea were held to a 2-2 draw, the Mirror reported.
