Fernando Torres says he will soon get rid of the facemask he has been wearing for protection.

The Chelsea striker broken his nose a few weeks back and has been donning a protective guard but says he is now on the mend and may ditch it if he is given the all-clear.

"It's getting better, but next week we will go with the doctors to get another scan to see if we can play without the mask," he said.

"It's not comfortable at all and it depends on the results (of the scan). Maybe (I will wear it) until the end of the season because there is not many games to come."
