Wilkins, unexpectedly sacked as Ancelottiâ€™s assistant in November, wants to see Didier Drogba â€” not Torres â€” start as lone striker in next weekâ€™s Champions League quarterfinal, second leg away to Manchester United, where they trail 1-0.
"I would play Didier up top on his own, with (Florent) Malouda on the left and either Nicolas Anelka or Salomon Kalou on the right," Ancelottiâ€™s close confidant told the Daily Mail.
"Why? Because I would play a 4-3-3 system and at this level you cannot accommodate players. It has to be one or the other and thereâ€™s three at Chelsea. Thereâ€™s Anelka, Drogba and Torres â€” it can only be one of them."
