Drogba was returning after a three-match European ban
Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti revealed he would not swap Didier Drogba for any other striker after his two goals in the 2-2 draw against Atletico Madrid.
Drogba, who was back after a three-match Uefa ban, took his tally to 12 for the season as Chelsea reached the last 16 of the Champions League.
"I want to keep him and I don't want to change him with another striker," said Chelsea's Italian coach Ancelotti.
"He is in a good moment, I'm very happy. I hope he can continue."
Drogba was making his return to the Champions League after a three-game suspension meted out for his furious reaction after Chelsea's exit to Barcelona at the semi-final stage last season.
The Ivory Coast international headed in to haul Chelsea level before putting them ahead late on only for Sergio Aguero to equalise in injury-time for Atletico.
"Didier is an important player for us. We have a lot of important players but he is doing very well and we are happy," said Ancelotti, whose side play Manchester United on Sunday as they seek to protect their two-point Premier League lead.
"He was motivated at the start of the season and has been doing very well and continues to do very well, and I hope he can play in other games like he did against Atletico."
Wednesday's draw put Chelsea top of Group D with 10 points, while second-placed Porto have nine, third-placed Atletico two and bottom-of-the-table Apoel Nicosia on one.
"We are in the next phase of the Champions League and this is important with two matches still to take place," added Ancelotti.
"That was a difficult match because Atletico played very well and I think the result is good.
