DIDIER DROGBA IS loving life in Major League Soccer.

The veteran striker, who signed for Montreal Impact in the summer, grabbed another goal for his new side as they beat Chicago Fire 2-1 at Stade Saputo last night.

The result meant the Canadian outfit stretched their unbeaten run to five games – and ensured they’re well in contention for a play-off place.

Drogba opened the scoring, in a mildly controversial way – brushing off Chicago defender Jeff Larentowicz (who ended up on the turf) – before heading home from close range. The guests complained of a foul but nothing was given.

It was the ex-Chelsea striker’s fifth goal in five appearances for Montreal and his second in two games.

The Fire responded through David Accam but Andres Romero kept his nerve as he raced through on goal and tucked home the game-winner with fourteen minutes to go.
