Fulham boss believes Chelsea duo can play together

Torres joined Chelsea in a record £50million deal from Liverpool in the January transfer window

Fulham are set to face the Blues at Craven Cottage on Monday evening.

“I expect them to gel together. They are good players so it will be interesting to see how the team shapes up,” said the Fulham boss.

“In the last few years with all its success, Chelsea have been based around a focal point which has been Drogba.

“He has a few others which support him as well – will that change with Torres? We will see. There is an expectation that the boy will play.

“I know (Chelsea manager) Carlo Ancelotti has played the diamond before so there could be a different formation now.

“Carlo has been working with formations all his life and will find the right fit, but with Torres it initially may take time.”
