Torres was impressive against Tottenham in the English Premier League on Saturday before being sent off and manager Jose Mourinho kept faith with the Spanish international, as Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba are both on the bench.

Also starting is Juan Mata, who was just as influential when coming on against Spurs at the weekend and plays alongside Oscar and Andre Schurrle.

John Terry and David Luiz start in the heart of the Chelsea defense with Frank Lampard and Ramires in the midfield.

Gary Cahill and Willian are amongst the substitutes for the EPL side, which hope to bounce back from the opening game defeat at home to FC Basel.
