Fernando Torres has one last chance to prove himself at Chelsea as Didier Drogba prepares to return.

The £50million Spanish flop, 27, has now gone 19 GAMES and 1,253 minutes since his last goal for the Blues way back on October 19 against minnows Genk in the Champions League.

And with fellow striker Drogba, 33, now back from the African Nations Cup, today's FA Cup clash with Birmingham could be Torres' last start for a long time.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas revealed: "Didier won't be in contention for the Birmingham game but he will be available to play against Napoli in the Champions League next week.

"We've used Fernando in all the eight games Drogba has been away and it hasn't been happening for him."
