Looks like Drogba will be out for a match or two. Should be ok with Lukaku and Sturridge, now that his 3 match ban is over.
With the way we played AFTER Mata came, Modric is not as needed as I thought. Just pushed Lamps left and Mata run the middle, easy easy easy!
And the Torres/Drogba 4-4-2 is possible, just look at the 20th minute. Torres slotted a ball with JUST too much pace and Drogs couldn't get on the end of it. Give them a few games together and it could work.
I would like to see a Midfield-Attack of this.
Lampard (LM) Mata (CAM) Ramires (RM)
Malouda (LW) Torres (ST) Sturridge (RW)
Sub Essien with Obi, Sub Drogba for Torres, Anelka/Sturridge, and so on.
