I would bet anything he will be going nowhere come January, when he does leave, it will be back to Spain I am sure. I bet Barca and Madrid would have him all day long.
Anelka is gone 1st Jan, thats done. Drogba is rumoured to want out in Jan too which I think is unlikely but he will be of to the Afrocup along with Kalou and Mikel which leaves Chelsea with just the 2 out and out strikers in Fernando and the unfavoured Lukaku.
If anything, they will be bringing in a striker and I wouldnt be suprised to see them move for a quicker centre half to allow AVB to play his 'defend on the oppositions 18 yard box' tactic.
Mikel's not going to Africa.
Come January we can choose for our front three from: Mata, Torres, Sturridge, Malouda, Lukaku. I'd expect to see Mata, Torres and Sturridge as regulars for the league matches with Malouda and Lukaku playing against Pompey in the cup. I think this gives Torres a few games to play himself in. It's got to happen sometime. If he doesn't manage to hit the net, we score plenty of goals from midfield and even defence.

He will score, I bet not having Nico and Dids on the bench will relieve him of a bit of pressure. At Liverpool, he knew everyone depended on him because if he came off it would be Voronin or Ngog coming on! I guess that mus give you a bit of security and belief when your out on the pitch. Some like the competition, he clearly doesnt!
