Fernando Torres lit the blue-touch paper for Chelsea's Barclays Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday by insisting he would have no qualms scoring against his former club.

By sheer co-incidence, this weekend's game could be Torres' first for the champions following his record-breaking £50million move from Anfield. The 26-year-old has not asked to be left out to avoid risking the wrath of his former club's fans, some of whom burned replica shirts bearing his name shortly before his switch to Stamford Bridge was sealed.

"If I have the chance to play, I will do my best for Chelsea and hopefully I can score." Torres said of the prospect of playing on Sunday.

"It is like the destiny. It is not perfect for me but we will see what happens and I only have good words about Liverpool.

"They made me a top player and gave me the chance to play at the top level.


"I will never say anything bad about Liverpool. I have been very happy there, but now the history is different and I am playing for Chelsea."

Torres' commitment to Liverpool this season was questioned prior to his move and he admitted he had begun thinking about leaving Anfield last summer.

"I felt from last summer that I need to do a step forward in my career and for my ambition as a footballer," he told his club's official website,, claiming Chelsea were on another level to his former side.

"I am joining a team that is at the top level. There is not another level after Chelsea."
