Carlo Ancelotti today refused to confirm whether Fernando Torres, Didier Drogba or both would lead the Chelsea attack in tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League game against Manchester United.

Ancelotti must decide whether to recall Drogba after the striker once again started on the bench in last week’s Champions League win at FC Copenhagen.

David Luiz returns to the squad after being ineligible for the last two matches but Alex (knee) and Yossi Benayoun (Achilles) are still sidelined.

Team (from): Cech, Bosingwa, Ferreira, Terry, Luiz, Ivanovic, Zhirkov, Cole, Mikel, Essien, Lampard, Ramires, McEachran, Kalou, Malouda, Anelka, Torres, Drogba, Turnbull.
