Yep, it happened. Roman Abramovic picked the team, or so the experts believe. Fernando Torres starts, while Didier Drogba sits on the bench. It's quite possible that Carlo Ancelotti actually believes that Drogba is not the best option for his team this evening, but I find that highly unlikely. As Ancelotti is a man on his last legs as manager anyway, I'm sure he was willing to play Torres if that's what the boss wanted. Otherwise, his team selection makes perfect sense as Chelsea lines up in a 4-3-3 that should allow them to keep the ball against Manchester United's 4-4-2.
Chelsea lineup (4-4-2): Cech; Cole, Terry, Alex, Ivanovic; Essien, Lampard, Ramires; Malouda, Torres, Anelka
Though Torres has failed to score to this point in a Chelsea shirt, surely I can't be the only one feeling like the time is now for him to pull out an epic "eff you" game. He's Fernando Torres. He's still a good player. Surely he has to remember this at some point.
