Fernando Torres set to make Chelsea return

Published 5 Comments

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is in contention to start his side's Premier League clash against West Ham United on Saturday, reports the London Evening Standard.

The 29-year-old striker missed Chelsea's 3-0 Champions League win against Schalke and their 2-2 Premier League draw with West Brom due to an adductor injury.

However Torres, who has netted five goals in 12 games for Chelsea this season, is likely to return to the Blues' starting line-up for their clash at Upton Park.

Samuel Eto'o replaced Torres for Jose Mourinho side's matches against Schalke and West Brom, scoring a combined three goals in the two aforementioned games.

Despite the former Inter Milan and Barcelona forward's recent form, reports suggest Mourinho could put Torres straight back into his starting XI.

Mourinho will be hoping his side, who are currently in fourth spot, can win their first Premier League game since their 2-1 victory over Manchester City on October 27.
