Fulham boss Hughes tipping Chelsea strikers to come together

Fulham manager Mark Hughes feels that Chelsea signing Fernando Torres will soon start to gel with his new teammates, particularly Didier Drogba. Ahead of Chelsea's short trip to Fulham on Monday night, Hughes was tipping the Blues forwards to gel and suggested that Carlo Ancelotti could perhaps tinker with a different system.

"I expect them to gel together. They are good players so it will be interesting to see how the team shapes up," said the Fulham boss.

"In the last few years with all its success, Chelsea have been based around a focal point which has been Drogba.

"He has a few others which support him as well - will that change with Torres? We will see. There is an expectation that the boy will play.

"I know (Chelsea manager) Carlo Ancelotti has played the diamond before so there could be a different formation now.

"Carlo has been working with formations all his life and will find the right fit, but with Torres it initially may take time."
