Di Matteo faces striker quandary

Published 3 Comments

Roberto Di Matteo was facing his biggest selection dilemma since Chelsea's Champions League triumph ahead of their Group E clash at Juventus on Tuesday night.

Blues boss Di Matteo was contemplating dropping Fernando Torres and others in his underachieving squad in order to avoid the defeat that would leave Chelsea on the brink of being the first Champions League holders to fail to reach the knockout stage.

Torres has started every game when available this season, but Di Matteo said on Monday: "I've always said that we have two strikers in our team, Fernando and Daniel Sturridge. They're both fit and I'll have to see how we're going to go tomorrow. I will do whatever I believe is best for this game."
