Drogba: Bolton comeback played on minds

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba says Bolton Wanderers' comeback from 4-0 down to 4-3 on Saturday played on the Blues' minds during their epic Champions League quarter-final second leg clash with Liverpool on Tuesday. The Londoners - 3-1 ahead from the first-leg - were staring a shock elimination in the face after a woeful opening period display left them trailing 2-0 courtesy of a cheeky Fabio Aurelio free-kick and Xabi Alonso penalty. However, following a stern talking to at the interval, Chelsea fought back to lead 3-2 in the second half, before a crazy final nine-minutes saw Rafael Benitez's side score twice to lead 4-3, before Frank Lampard netted late on to complete a 4-4 draw on the night and 7-5 victory on aggregate.   The Blues will now face Barcelona in the semi-finals. And Drogba, who bagged his side's opener in the eight-goal epic, revealed that the Trotters' fightback at the weekend played on Chelsea's minds. "The desire to qualify got us through," he said. "We lost our nerve maybe, I think the three goals we let in against Bolton were still in our heads. "In both legs we have shown our character and quality. I don't know what happened in the first half, but we have shown our character. "It was a great game, we made it very hard for ourselves. They kept coming back, it was a great tie."
