Torres Odds-On To Fill Drogba’s Boots, Hulk 4/1 To Do So
Didier Drogba has announced his intention to leave Chelsea and William Hill are betting on who will start Chelsea's first game of next season and make Fernando Torres 1/2 to fill the Drogba shaped hole on Chelsea's front line. Other names thrown into the mix are Lukaku 11/4, Hulk 4/1, Falcao and Cavani both 6/1, Llornete at 12/1 and Lavezzi 14/1.
"Drogba has been the big-Drog at Chelsea for the last eight years and whoever fills the gap has very big boots to fill and although Torres has struggled since moving to Chelsea, the odds suggest that he will be taking up the reins," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
