Torres will play regardless and they'll probably recall Lukaku who I honestly think is good enough right now to slot into the Chelsea team on a semi regular basis. Bloody Belgians. I so want one. £12m if true is silly, but if they can get him reproducing his Bolton form then I guess it's worth it and it's not the fans money so why care as long as he produces the goods (which I don't think will happen fyi).
Sturridge is the striker Liverpool deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So they’ll observe him because he can take it. Because he’s not Liverpool's hero now, he is a silent striker, a watchful footballer… an ok forward...
