Carlo Ancelotti Could Give Didier Drogba Blackpool Start

Didier Drogba has been dropped to the bench in recent weeks after Fernando Torres was brought in during the transfer window.

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti may play Drogba against Blackpool tonight as he looks to try him out with Fernando Torres.

Ancelotti said ‘Will Drogba play? I’ve made my decision already. You will know on Monday.

‘We changed something in the last month because we wanted to put more pressure on the pitch, to get the ball up front. But the philosophy is the same.’

‘It’s not my team, I’ve said that. It’s the team of our owner. I am proud to manage this team and I want to do my best. I thought this the first day I was here. I hope to think the same on the last day I’m here.

‘It’s not true that only I wanted Ramires, or Luiz. I’ve said a lot of times, we have discussions with the (backroom) team and we take a decision together. We thought Luiz, Torres and Ramires would be good to have to improve the squad, and the owner did a great job to bring them in. We took a decision together.’
