Will Torres Start?
Chelsea arrived in Madrid yesterday without Samuel Eto`o with the Cameroon international absent through a knee injury.
Many pundits are assuming that Fernando Torres will start against his former club, a dangerous supposition considering Torre`s recent form.
However, talking to the media, Jose Mourinho has re-iterated that Chelsea, despite the defeat at home to bottom of the table Sunderland on Saturday, fully motivated, remarking,
"Everybody picked to start will be full of motivation for sure."
And as for Torres possibly facing his old club, Jose was giving very little away simply remarking,
"I`m not saying Fernando will start, I`m saying he never hides and we feel that every day."
"We speak about Spanish football every day. He is a real Atletico supporter, a big, big one, but he`s a professional."
"I have no doubts the minutes he`s on tomorrow he will try to do everything for Chelsea as the fantastic professional he is."
And that is all we can possibly ask for as we face, probably, the best team in Spain at the moment.
