Selection Dilemma - Drogba or Torres?

Didier Drogba's terrific form at Wembley almost guarantees him a place in the starting line-up on Sunday, the Ivorian has never failed to score at Wembley in all 7 FA cup and League cup appearances he has made. But what do we make of Fernando Torres' recent insurgence in form? Although a hat-rick against an honestly abysmal QPR side is no indicator he is back to his devastating best, "El Nino" is showing great signs of improvement. Will Drogba's inclusion stunt Fernando's improvement that fans have so patiently waited to see?

And what about the pair starting alongside one another? The two don't have lots of experience playing together and Torres will be forced right if they do. Di Matteo's strategy relies on the two wide players to track back and I'm not sure how this will suit Torres. However, Di Matteo bought on Torres alongside Drogba is Chelsea's remarkable 4-1 comeback over Napoli, they looked menacing together.

However, two top class strikers competing for a place is no bad thing, much less of the dilemma six months ago when Torres was frightened to make runs and Drogba was at the head of dressing room faction antics in the AVB era. Therefore I am interested to see who DI Matteo starts with on Sunday.

Come on you Blues
