Di Matteo could change Chelsea style to play Torres and Drogba together

Chelsea interim manager Roberto Di Matteo has revealed he could alter his side’s formation to accommodate both Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Thus far under Di Matteo the Telegraph notes that Chelsea have played with a lone striker in a 4-2-3-1 formation, winning each of the four games Di Matteo has taken charge of. But the improving form of Torres, who scored two and created two against Leicester City in the FA Cup on Sunday, has caused Di Matteo to explore other options.

The Italian said: “To have that firepower in the team, it’s fantastic. And we will try to do our best to try to exploit the good form of both.

Torres’ double against Championship side Leicester were his first goals in more than 24 hours of playing time, since finding the back of the net against Belgian outfit Genk in the Champions League in October. Since his £50m from Liverpool in January last year Torres has scored seven goals in 52 Chelsea appearances and was recently left out of the Spain squad for a friendly ahead of this summer’s European Championships.
