Torres saw red in the 1-1 draw.
But Mourinho put an arm around Torresâ€™s shoulder as he left the pitch and offered a word of encouragement.
"He knows Iâ€™m very happy with his performances," said the manager, who thought his strikerâ€™s improved physical condition was the key to his good form, rather than simply an explosion of rage.
"Heâ€™s very strong, physically. I was watching Fernandoâ€™s matches for Chelsea in other seasons and he looked a bit heavy, a little slow. I think Fernando looks in fantastic shape now."
