How Torres and Luiz will fit in at Chelsea

With Chelsea’s dramatic deadline day signings of Luiz and Torres completed, attention will now turn to how they will fit into the Chelsea side.
I see Carlo Ancelotti breaking with Chelsea’s tried and trusted 4-3-3 and moving to a a unconventional 4-4-1-2 system, and John Terry shifting to the right side of central defence to accommodate the left footed Luiz.

I see Carlo Ancelotti breaking with Chelsea’s tried and trusted 4-3-3 and moving to a  a unconventional  4-3-1-2 system, and John Terry shifting to the right side of central defence to accommodate the left footed Luiz.

With the ball in the opponents half I can see Chelsea’s shape being something like

===============Cech=======================
==========Terry=====Luiz===================
=========================================
=Ivanovic=======Mikel=======================
======Essien=====Lampard============Cole=====
=======================Malouda============
==========Drogba===========================
==================Torres===================

And without the ball Chelsea’s shape will be almost 4-4-2 with Malouda dropping back and Essien tucking in.
