Drogba turned in yet another prolific performance on Saturday, leading Montreal to its third consecutive victory with a brace versus D.C. United. He now has seven goals and one assist in six appearances for the Canadian club. Montreal remains unbeaten with Drogba in the starting lineup, going 4-0-1 in his five starts, as it tightens its grip on an Eastern Conference playoff berth. Saturday’s match marked the striker’s third consecutive match with a goal and improved his goals per 90 minutes clip to 1.31. This is Drogba’s second Player of the Week selection.
Drogba doubled Montreal’s lead with an impressive solo effort in the 11th minute. The Chelsea legend picked up the ball just outside the center circle and skated past defender Steve Birnbaum with a slick stepover. Drogba then chipped the ball over an onrushing Hamid into the back of the net to secure the victory (watch goal).
