Chelsea striker Torres always confident scoring against Barcelona

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has told manager Roberto di Matteo to play him against Barcelona.

Di Matteo's biggest selection dilemma ahead of tonight's game is whether to start with Torres or Didier Drogba.

Torres, who scored seven goals in 10 games against Barcelona whilst at Atlético Madrid, said: "I have a good record against Barcelona.

"They are the type of team you have to defend well against and play on the counter-attack, which is the type of game I enjoy.

"When I was at Atlético Madrid, we won at the Camp Nou two or three times.

"I certainly don't feel as if I have anything to prove against Spanish opposition."
