Chelsea’s new manager is prepared to play RUSSIAN ROULETTE from the start: Will this wholesale change pay dividends?

It’s been a while since we’ve seen these two paired together in a Premier League match. Both claim they can work well together on the pitch, but so far things haven’t worked out that well. Was their recent display against Watford a sign of things to come? Guus Hiddink is betting on it.

Drogba, who hasn’t played a major role in a Premier League starting XI in some time, will get the chance to pair with Nicolas Anelka up front. Both strikers crave the ball, so it will be interesting to see how they play together in a must-win match. Their recent match against Watford proved that they can be prolific, but then again, Aston Villa brings a totally different team to the table compared to the Championship side.

What do Chelsea supporters make of the move? Can Anelka and Drogba work together up front?
