Torres set for Drobga link-up

25 April 2011 02:00
Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti admits he is considering starting Fernando Torres up front with Didier Drogba in next week's match against Tottenham.

Torres ended a 15-hour wait to open his Chelsea account after beating Robert Green to score the second goal in the Blues' 3-0 win over West Ham on Saturday.

The Spaniard scored while playing up front with Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka, rather than with Drogba, who has failed to strike up a rapport with the £50million man since his arrival in February.

The Chelsea boss insists that Drogba and Torres are compatible, though, and is tempted to deploy the duo up front in Saturday's crucial London derby at Stamford Bridge.

"They don't have a problem playing together," Ancelotti said.

"Didier is moving very well, not just in the box but also outside.

"He is doing fantastic assists for his team-mates and for this reason I don't think they will have a problem playing together."
