Villas-Boas to decide on Torres
Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has suggested striker Fernando Torres will be involved in Wednesday's UEFA Champions League tie against Genk.
Torres is currently serving a domestic suspension and was forced to watch Saturday's 3-1 victory over Everton in the Premier League from the sidelines.
However, the Spain international is expected to return against Genk as Villas-Boas aims to ensure Torres will not be rusty when he completes his three-match ban.
"If we don't decide on him, it will be a long time out of the game," said Villas-Boas. "But he has been keeping fit in training and played for Spain.
"It's just a decision we have to make, bearing in mind what we want for the team."
Meanwhile, Villas-Boas has warned his side not to be complacent in their upcoming Champions League double-header against Genk.
The Blues will be expected to take a huge step towards the knockout stages in their two Group E games with the Belgian runners-up, but Villas-Boas has refused to take anything for granted.
"I think it's going to be difficult," he said ahead of Wednesday night's clash at Stamford Bridge.
"When everyone expects you to win, that's when you maybe relax yourself too much and we can't relax ourselves too much.
"At the moment, the group is very open, and anything can happen. We lost two points in Valencia that we wanted badly.
"We have to focus and concentrate on getting the six points against Genk."
