Torres fit to play against Chelsea

All you Liverpool fans, stop worrying about Fernando Torres’ injury. The 23-year old striker limped off during Spain’s victory over France in an international friendly on Wednesday but he has been passed fit to play against Chelsea at the weekend.

Sky Sports reports that Torres himself has assured Liverpool that he is ready to play this weekend and has revealed that he requested to be substituted after he sustained a minor hamstring injury against France.

Torres says:

I preferred not to risk it. I demanded the change. I will have medical tests, but I intend to play on Sunday against Chelsea.

Chelsea’s heart must be broken. After all, facing Liverpool without their most potent weapon would have been that much easier.
