Didier Drogba is confident he will continue his golden run of cup final goalscoring form by firing Chelsea to Carling Cup glory on Sunday.

Chelsea are set to face Tottenham at Wembley as the two sides compete for this season's first major piece of domestic silverware.

And Drogba, who has scored four goals in cup final victories over Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United in the past, is confident that he will continue his impressive run of form at the weekend.

"I want to score in the final again," Drogba told skysports.com. "I have scored in all finals Chelsea have played so far.

"I am a big game player and I have scored against the big three in finals.

"I want to do it against the team who is close to the big four (Tottenham). It will be a great final."

And the Ivory Coast forward also believes that his partnership with £15million January signing Nicolas Anelka will help Chelsea, who are still chasing glory in the FA Cup, UEFA Champions League and Premier League, to success on four fronts.

"He (Anelka) is a top player," Drogba continued. "I speak French like him and I think we can play together.

"If we click as we all expect, we will be very dangerous for the remaining of the season. My club has a lot to play for. We are still in four competitions."

Drogba, though, is wary of the threat posed by Tottenham and believes Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov will be a danger.

"I respect Spurs," Drogba added. "They have a world class player in Berbatov. I am a big fan of his and he is so skillful.

"His technique is there with (Zinedine) Zidane, (Cristiano) Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and (Thierry) Henry."

'When you have big players in a team like Chelsea it is always not an easy decision, it was not easy on Tuesday but it was also not a good situation when they were out, it was a worse situation so always there is situations that are not easy. This is my life, I like it, and it will be the same in the next three months.'

What about after the next three months are over? 300.gif

Berbatov might have good technique but isn't Drogba overexagerating a bit? 300.gif
