Baâ€™s January arrival from Newcastle United has provided some healthy competition for Torres as the manager makes it clear he will not be playing favourites with his fellow countryman.
â€śIâ€™ve spoken to Fernando a lot and with Demba and they know what I am expecting of them,â€ť he said ahead of Wednesday nightâ€™s Capital One Cup semi-final first leg against Swansea City.
â€śWe have now two good players, two good options, and both will compete. I can see everything positive in terms of the team now.
â€śTalking with Demba and Fernando, they both know they have to compete and play well. It can bring the best out of both of them.â€ť
