Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho defended Fernando Torres after victory over Stoke City.

Torres returned to the starting XI after being left out of Wednesday's striker-less line-up at Paris St Germain, but had few chances of note.

"As always he gave everything he can," Mourinho said.

"It's a pity he didn't score a goal because strikers need goals. Even in a match where you win 3-0, you don't score the winning goal, but if you can score a goal it's good for your confidence as a striker."
