Torres fit to return for Chelsea against West Brom
Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is set to return from injury against West Brom this week after manager Jose Mourinho confirmed he is fit, Sky Sports has reported.
The Spain international has been missing from action for three weeks after injuring his knee in the 3-1 victory against Manchester United on January 19.
In Torres’ absence Mourinho has relied on experienced striker Samuel Eto’o, who has contributed six goals to the team this season, including a hat-trick against United.
Chelsea have a busy fixture schedule ahead of them in the coming weeks. After the trip to West Brom on Wednesday, they travel to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City on Saturday evening in the FA Cup, before hosting Everton in the league a week later.
With Torres back from injury, Mourinho also revealed in his press conference that captain John Terry will miss the clash at the Hawthorns after the defender was absent from the win against Newcastle at the weekend with a knock.
He said: “John Terry is still out but Fernando is back and available for selection. I expect John to be back for the next game (against Man City).”
