Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that striker Fernando Torres is in contention to feature for his side's clash with Aston Villa tomorrow evening, reports The Daily Star

The Spanish ace, who was taken out of the starting XI that beat Tottenham after suffering a groin problem in the warm up, saw both of his partners Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba score for the Blues last weekend. 

However, after it was first feared that he would face a spell on the sidelines, it now appears that he could be involved at Villa Park tomorrow. 

Although, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho suggested that he could rest the forward and prepare him for his side's UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg clash with Galatasaray on Tuesday. 

The Blues go into the game against Didier Drogba and Co. level at 1-1 and will be hoping to make the quarter finals of Europe's elite competition.

For now though, Chelsea will be focusing on their Premier League clash tomorrow, but it remains to be seen as to whether Chelsea will take Torres to Villa Park. 

Speaking to reporters, Mourinho said: "Fernando is much, much better.

"Maybe I take him tomorrow. Maybe I don't take him and I try everything for Tuesday."

Chelsea will be hoping to maintain their fine form by securing all three points against Paul Lambert's side.
