Chelsea's changing of the guard

CARLO Ancelotti is ready to shake up Stamford Bridge with the arrival of Fernando Torres (left) and David Luiz -- and that could be bad news for Didier Drogba (right).

The Chelsea boss could begin the changing of the old guard as early as tonight at Craven Cottage against Fulham by choosing Torres to lead the line, with Drogba confined to the bench.

"Now we have a strong squad with David Luiz and Torres. We've improved our ability and we have more power," said Ancelotti.

"The squad was good, now it is better.

"With Luiz we can have more rotation with our players and maintain more fresh defenders," said Ancelotti.

"We will not have a problem in the centre of defence in the future."

However, Terry is expected to partner Luiz at the back for tonight's clash.
