Chelsea Update: Manchester City v Chelsea Tickets

Antonio Di Mateo, Interim Chelsea FC Manager

Chelsea Update

 Wednesday night's match presents a center-forward selection dilemma between Torres, Daniel Sturridge and Drogba.

"If the game requires it, yes."

Di Matteo has used a 4-2-3-1 formation for the four games he has been in charge.

"It's great for this football club, isn't it?" he said. "To have that firepower in the team, it's fantastic. And we will try to do our best to try to exploit the good form of both. It's going to be tough on anybody I leave out.

"We have a fantastic squad and it hurts to leave players out of that calibre. It's really difficult.

"I can only field 11 positions and the ones on the bench."

 "I wouldn't think it's difficult to play for the team.

"Every player has to put his individual qualities within the team for the benefit of the team."

"We forget that he's a very young player, a very young man, and really this is his first full season with his club.

"He's still developing if you think about it for his age and how many game's he's played.

"There is certainly some incredible talent that you can improve and he can help the team win more games.

"I think he could play down the centre. He has the ability to play in both positions."

John Terry is out for tonight's game.

"He did very well to come back from his operation and he's then played two games in a very short period of time, very intense games as well. He's fine for Saturday."

Torres chatted about the similarities between his team mate Juan Mata and compatriat David Silva.

"Both are key players for their teams and when they have a good day they can win the game themselves, not just scoring but by also assisting and being the main man," Torres said.

"When a team is having a bad period in a game the other players are always looking for these kind of players who have the ability with the ball, so I am very lucky to have the chance to play with both of them in the national team but hopefully tonight it can be Juan Mata's day and not David Silva's day.

'With Silva in the national team, he plays always as a winger so I never play with him behind, whereas now Mata at Chelsea is playing behind the striker and for a striker it is very good to have a player like this between the lines.

"You know they have the ability to be clear to pass the final ball to you in front of the keeper.'
