Rafael Benitez is confident that Fernando Torres will accept occasionally sitting on the bench if Chelsea bring in another striker during the transfer window.

Chelsea have been linked with a number of strikers, with Radamel Falcao, Demba Ba and Andre Schurrle all reported to be on Benitez's radar as he attempts to bring in some competition for the former Atletico Madrid man.

"We are trying to manage the team so when I can change Fernando I will do it," Chelsea's interim manager said. "We will try to manage him and hopefully we can do things properly. He wants the team winning games and he understands that is the way so he will accept this."
