Drogba and Torres start together in a 4-4-2 diamond. One of Malouda and Lampard is playing point, but I have no idea which one, while Salomon Kalou and Yossi Benayoun appear to have vanished into the ether. Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata could make their debuts today what with the hanging out on the bench business. Hopefully this'll be a good game in which to blood them.

And I guess Leon Barnett isn't suspended. Whoops.
