Offbeat : Chelsea’s Charity Ball With Didier Drogba, Eden Hazard, John Terry



    Chelsea’s star players came out to celebrate their 1-0 win over Man United over the weekend at a charity ball.

    The event was arranged by star striker Didier Drogba and held at the fancy Dorchester hotel in London.

    The players arrived suited and booted and ready to party at the Ivorian’s organised bash on Saturday night.
    The charity event raised funds for the Didier Drogba Foundation, the player’s own charity, which hopes to change Africa for the better.

    Eden Hazard, Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic, Nemanja Matic and Chelsea captain John Terry were all in attendance to raise money to give young Africans access to better healthcare and a chance to gain an education.

    American singer Christian Milian also provided entertainment for the night, getting both Drogba and Hazard to groove out on the dance floor while belting out her hit songs.


    Hazard, who topped off his outfit with a hat, arrived at the hotel with a smile on his face after scoring the only goal which secured Chelsea all three points at Stamford Bridge.

    Cech, Ivanovic and Terry arrived with their wives, who looked happy to join the party.

    Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry also made an appearance at the bash, as did former Tottenham Hotspur duo Edgar Davids and Jermain Defoe along with former Manchester United ace Louis Saha.

    Chelsea now sit 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League table with north London outfit Arsenal in second place.

    Terry led the celebrations on the field at full-time, with his team clear in the knowledge that they are almost there in the hunt for a first title in five years.

    Wins in their next two games against Arsenal at the Emirates and against Leicester City would wrap up the Barclays Premier League crown with room to spare.
