It depends on how you want to compare the two players. For instance :

In the 2008 - 2009 Premier League season,

Fernando Torres made a total of 24 Appearances for Liverpool, scoring a total of 14 goals,

Didier Drogba made a total of 24 Appearances for Chelsea, scoring a total of 4 goals.

In other cup competitions,

Fernando Torres made 14 Appearances ( FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League ) scoring 3 goals,

Didier Drogba made 18 Appearances ( FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League ) scoring 9 goals.

Now if you add up the total games played and goals scored for both players in the 2008 - 2009 season, it would be as follows ;

Fernando Torres - 38 Appearances / 17 Goals, with a ratio of 1 goal every 2.23 games,

Didier Drogba - 42 Appearances / 14 Goals, with a ratio of 1 goal every 3 games.

So far this season ( 2009 - 2010 ), Torres has scored a total of 8 goals in 8 games, and Drogba has scored 6 goals in 9 games.

Therefore statistically, Torres was better than Drogba in the 2008 - 2009 season, and he is pipping him in the goal ratio this season with 1 goal, every game.

Although a lot of this answer can be based on individuals opinions, as each player is excellent in their own right.

Is Torres happy with didier drogba?

Fernando Torres has repeatedly said that he has no problem with the Ivorian. The fact that in the past 18 months Didier Drogba has been a far better player than Fernando Torres has nothing to do with their relationship. The fact that Drogba has scored 34 goals in 56 games in the past 18 months and Fernando has scored 8 in 45, is a big talking point for most Chelsea fans. But anyhow, Didier is likely to be leaving Stamford Bridge, so Torres will be on his own.

Who is better Torres v Drogba?

As they are both strikers, their main purpose of being is the number of goals they score, so that is the measure we should use to compare them; In his 5.5 seasons at Chelsea, Didier Drogba has scored 69 Premier League goals in 152 appearances, for a strike rate of 0.45. In his 2.5 seasons at Liverpool, Fernando Torres has scored 50 Premier League goals in 72 appearances, a strike rate of 0.69. On the basis of goals scored and strike rate, Fernando Torres is better than Didier Drogba. Of course this comparison is only valid for Torres fans who have no interest in objectivity, as the comparisons are clearly invalid. Drogba's stats have been taken from the entirety of his PL career, but Torres stats only include his figures from Liverpool, for whom he has not been playing for two seasons. As is well know, his strike rate ar Chelsea is abysmal, and cannot compare to Drogba's, which is why the latter has consistently been selected over the former. Drogba started the ECL Final, and scored the winning goal, whilst Torres started on the bench. This says much about their comparative abilities. Whilst Torred may have been comparable at his peak - although, frankly, the two are entirely different in their individual qualities - Drogba has never endured a drought of two seasons, and unless Torres ever shows his prior form he is clearly behind Drogba.
