Chelsea Vs. Barcelona Team News: Drogba Starts Over Torres, Pique Out For Barcelona

Twitter is abuzz with team news right now, including a possible Barcelona lineup. First, there's news on the Fernando Torres vs. Didier Drogba front - Drogba will start for the Blues, and Torres will not:

So that's interesting. Drogba will NOT be facing Gerard Pique, who is out for some reason - his centre back opponents will be Carles Puyol and Javier Mascherano, meaning that Barcelona are having a little bit of a crisis at the back. Can only be good for us.
