Not that I was into this debate before, but this truly must put it to bed. Torres has not been great for us, but this season he's been alright. Eto'o has been slightly worse than Torres this season (no debate here, stats show it) but I guess you could put that down to him acclimatising to the PL.

Anyway, my opinion before was that we should start Nando, and these stats have just backed it up. Thought he was in pretty good short term form before the injury. 3 goals in 4 appearances wasn't it?

Torres has been unlucky with injuries this season, but he's done well for us. Eto'o has been good too, in spells.

Ultimately we have two strikers with different strengths for different games. When there's space behind defences then Torres is the choice (I expect him to play in Galatasaray). In tighter games then Eto'o probably has better link up play to bring in the likes of Hazard.

But the arguments need to stop and people need to realise that whether they favour Torres or Eto'o, they can all agree on one thing:

Ba is a pile of shit.

Have a strong feeling this'll be one of those games we all hate to see our side go against. Can see it being a lame defensive stalemate for the majority of the match with neither side threatening goal. One team will then get a really late goal and win 1-0.

Just hope we look like we actually have a plan in the final third this time. Don't play at walking pace like we did against West Brom and don't act like headless chickens with ZERO ideas like we did against West Ham. The game plan should be to move the ball quickly and use width. Don't have Hazard playing more through the middle than on the flanks where he's been a world beater.

Absolutely crucial 3 points. Everyone talking about the title or us being locked in the top 3. If we lose this one and Liverpool & Spuds win theirs we'll be in a serious battle just for top 4. Which is insane considering how shit Spuds have been this season and their pathetic goal difference.

Jose was very calm, weird.

Calm? More like annoyed or irritated. Gave straightforward answers to any Chelsea related questions and batted off any others. Different to the past weeks. No soundbites, headlines, phrases etc for the media to feed on this week.

Luiz out JT definite starter.

Just to add, Luiz has a muscle injury and hence will not be available for tomorrow's game but Mourinho is hoping he'll be back fit for Galatasaray on Wednesday.

Wonder if Eto'o will have his rubber band boots on again if he starts!

He will start again assuredly and those "rubber band boots" seem to work a lot more effectively than Torres' cinder block boots.
