Fernando Torres set to start against Genk
Fernando Torres is set to make his return to the starting line-up this week as Andre Villas-Boas shuffles his pack. The striker is serving a three-match domestic ban following last month's straight red card against Swansea. But he is available for the Champions League and in line to play against Belgian minnows Genk on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge. Villas-Boas admitted: "Fernando is keeping fit in training and he also will be almost a month without playing for us in the Premier League, so I will decide in the next couple of days whether to use him on Wednesday. We cannot allow ourselves to relax against Genk but that is what can happen in a game which everyone expects you to win. Our group is still very open so we have to concentrate on taking six points from our next two games against Genk to put us in a good position to qualify for the next round."
