Venables convinced three Chelsea stars must make way for Torres

Former Chelsea striker Terry Venables believes three players will have to make way to accommodate Fernando Torres.

El Tel wrote in his column for The Sun: "There has been much debate about who in Carlo Ancelotti's squad will make way for the record buy as he makes his debut against ex-club Liverpool.

"But I do not think just one player will be left out to accommodate Torres - I reckon there will be THREE.

"The unfortunate Salomon Kalou, John Obi Mikel and Florent Malouda will form the first and most unwanted hat-trick of his Chelsea career.

"It is tough on those three casualties, who have served the club with nothing other than distinction.

"And they will not be the only ones to be affected by El Nino's inclusion.

"Didier Drogba must get used to no longer being the centre-piece of the club's strike-force.

"That is now bestowed upon Torres."
