Chelsea interim manager Roberto di Matteo has suggested that he might consider the possibility of playing both Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres in the final of the Champions League against Bayern Munich on May 19.
This is arguably the biggest match in the history of Chelsea, but Roberto di Matteo has revealed that he may make some changes to the team in order to overcome the suspensions.
Chelsea have four important players suspended for the final in the form of John Terry, Ramires, Branislav Ivanovic and Raul Meireles. As a result, they are extremely weak in the defensive positions.
Roberto di Matteo has revealed that he might try to counter-attack by going for an offensive formation that includes both Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres, despite the fact that they both are yet to score a single goal in 19 occasions they have been on the field together.
The 19th time came in the weekend against Blackburn Rovers when Roberto di Matteo played both the strikers, but they failed to score this time around as well. Bayern Munich are also suffering from suspensions, but injuries to David Luiz and Gary Cahill mean that Chelsea are even worse in terms of luck when compared to Bayern Munich.
"I tried a few things to just have a look and see how it could work out. It's always difficult because obviously it's going to be a different opposition. But I've been trying to figure out a few things," Roberto di Matteo said after the Blackburn match. However, it is extremely tough to see him changing the formation of the team that has been so effective since his arrival a few months ago. Didier Drogba is the favourite to start the match, which will also likely to be his last for Chelsea.
