Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has defended Fernando Torres after his substitute's performance in their draw at Manchester United.

Mourinho insists he values Torres' contribution.

"If you like the numbers, and you like the 50 million pounds, then you have to go there. He scored the goal that on the UEFA Cup so that means some millions, he scored the goal against Everton that put Chelsea in the Champions League so that means some millions, so if it's not already 50, maybe it's 20 now," said Mourinho.

"He is doing his job and today he did again. He worked hard for the team, it was not a game where we were producing a lot for him to have many scoring situations. He did his job and I am happy with Fernando, no problem.'"
