Tricked you didn't I? You thought all the "answers" would be from outside Chelsea's squad, didn't you?
Even if you are frustrated at the deceitful presentation of this idea, hear it out.
Andre Villas-Boas has already claimed that he does not intend to pursue a new striker in the transfer window, and Chelsea seem to be linked with a great deal of attack-minded midfielders, from Lucas to Kaka to Wesley Sneijder.
Milos Krasic is also seen as a likely transfer target for Chelsea.
Should Chelsea succeed in acquiring any of these targets, it may just be time for Andre Villas-Boas to ditch the ineffective 4-3-3 for a two-striker formation.
Indeed, on numerous occasions Juan Mata has looked much more like an attacking midfielder than a winger, while Daniel Sturridge has looked like a pure striker for much of the season and already proved his effectiveness as a front-man last season with Bolton.
I wouldn't put Daniel Sturridge up front by himself, but moving him from a wide role to a more central striker role opens up numerous options.
If desired, Juan Mata could play just behind Sturridge in a 4-4-1-1, with Krasic or Ramires and Florent Malouda going down the flanks.
Another option would be to keep Mata on the flanks, while putting someone like Wesley Sneijder in his favored position (just behind the striker). Lucas and Kaka can operate in similar roles.
Finally, Fernando Torres would likely benefit from the presence of a forward like Daniel Sturridge alongside him, similar to how he used to benefit from the presence of David Villa with Spain.
Playing a target man like Didier Drogba alongside Torres has proved disastrous in the past, but a pacey striker who's willing to share the wealth might be just what Torres needs to get back on form.
