UCL: Drogba out after arm surgery
Didier Drogba will miss Tuesday's Champions League game at Racing Genk after having surgery on his arm. "The international break has led to the opportunity being taken to remove some metalwork from his arm," the club said in a statement. "That was left over from a bone break prior to the 2010 World Cup and he should be ready to rejoin training when his colleagues go away with their nations." Drogba's fellow striker Nicolas Anelka is back in the squad for the game against Genk in Belgium after missing Saturday's home defeat by Arsenal through injury. Drogba has scored just once in seven Premier League appearances this season and is yet to feature in the Champions League.
