Fernando Torres: Short of goals

Fernando Torres: Short of goals

Roberto Di Matteo is deciding whether to axe Fernando Torres for Chelsea's crunch Champions League game at Juventus.

Torres was hauled off during Saturday's Barclays Premier League defeat at West Brom after another miserable performance and Di Matteo could start Daniel Sturridge in his place on Tuesday night.

Ashley Cole should return after recovering from his hamstring injury, as should several other rested players but John Terry (knee) and Frank Lampard (calf) were left in London.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Ivanovic, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Cole, Bertrand, Mikel, Romeu, Ramires, Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Moses, Marin, Piazon, Torres, Sturridge, Turnbull.

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
