Chelsea players would be happy if Fernando Torres left Stamford Bridge.

The Daily Mail says his team-mates have lost count of the number of times he has told them he wishes he was back at Liverpool. Some of the Chelsea players wish he was.

Torres felt alienated by Didier Drogba's allies when first arriving from Anfield, but the situation hasn't improved this season.

Torres was benched for yesterday's win at Stoke City, with manager Rafa Benitez preferring new signing Demba Ba to his fellow Spaniard.
