Mourinho implores Torres to welcome Chelsea competition

Fernando Torres must relish the chance to work harder for his spot in the Chelsea team.

They are the sentiments of manager Jose Mourinho who feels the Spaniard may need to compete with Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku for a starting berth.

"I think Torres should be happy, because we have competition in the team in every position and that is good for everybody," said Mourinho.

"Sometimes Torres has been the only striker and then Demba Ba came in January, and now we have three strikers (with Lukaku back from his West Brom loan) and that is good for the team."
