Hi guys .. I am a big Chelsea fan from Kuwait. Chelsea has my team since 1996 (i think i am not a plastic fan after all). In every FM incarnation i try to emulate what Chelsea are doing in real life, thus i am really excited to have Torres in my squad yet i am really annoyed that how can i fit him in the same line-up with Drogba and Anelka ?? Ideas ??

I would play a 4-4-2 with 2 wingers and Anelka being the right sided winger with Drogba and Torres upfront mate. Good to see another Chelsea fan on here lol.

Either play 4-2-2-2 with Anelka on the right or a narrow diamond midfield with Anelka at the tip. I retrained Anelka to AMC and it works pretty well.

I would say Drogba either target man or complete forward and Torres as poacher.

I doubt you'd want to emulate what Chelsea have been doing recently mate :p

To fit all three of them would be hard without weakening the midfield. I would just sell Anelka or keep him as a backup but he isn't worth it on £90,000 and I would play a 4-1-2-1-2 but Anelka can't pass well enough to play in attacking midfield and he isn't very versatile to train him to that role in the first place so you would need a new AM. Pastore, Paulo Henrique and Hamsik would be your best bets.

I guessing Drogba would be the deep lying and Torres the advanced?

I would personally go for Drogba - Target man attack and Torres - Poacher, advanced forward whichever works best for you.

If you play three of them in the same time then who will be the cover?Remember Torres is quite injury-prone. I'd recommend playing 2 upfront with Drogba as Target man, Torres as Adv Forward and Anelka as deep lying forward. Rotate 3 of them every match and you'll have pretty solid forwards.

Well mate for me the best tactic for Chelsea is 4-2-3-1
It actually looks like this.


Drogba

Torres Kalou/Malouda Anelka


Essien Lampard


Cole Terry Alex Ivanovic

Cech



Torres as Inside Forward/Attack Anelka as Inside Forward/Support Drogba as Target Man Support believe me..​

Torres works as a beast when you put him as complete forward - attack. :)
