Torres wins striker battle at Chelsea with starting place for Hull

Fernando Torres is set to start for Chelsea today against Hull City.

The Mail on Sunday says Torres is expected to start for Chelsea after Jose Mourinho favoured the Spanish striker over Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku in training.

Torres was expected to be the prime casualty of Mourinho's regime but with Chelsea having failed to add to their strikeforce, the Spaniard seems in prime position.
