Can Chelsea's front two play together?
Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka

The big decision facing Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari this Sunday is whether he partners strikers Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba for his team's crucial away game at Manchester United.

Even Drogba has questioned whether his coach is "afraid" to play them together and apart from his team's head-scratching home form, it is the Brazilian's biggest teaser of the season.

While the Blues are hardly struggling, sat second in the Premier League table and with Anelka the league's top scorer, Drogba's ability to make a difference in big games makes him difficult to leave out.
