Chelsea manager Mourinho: Lukaku can challenge Torres

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has warned Fernando Torres he faces fresh competition from Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku has returned to Chelsea after a stellar loan spell at West Bromwich Albion.

"Of course Lukaku can challenge Torres," Mourinho said. "He is learning to play the way I want.

"Every manager has his own ideas. Lukaku had a fantastic ­manager last season, but Steve Clarke is Steve Clarke, I am me, and West Brom is not Chelsea.

"It's up to the kid, but he's open and intelligent to learn the kind of movement we want."
