Torres poser for Benitez

Rafael Benitez must decide whether to recall Fernando Torres for his first game in charge of Chelsea against Manchester City on Sunday.

One of Roberto Di Matteo’s final acts as manager was dropping Torres for the first time this season before Tuesday’s fateful Champions League defeat at Juventus.

Chelsea remain without John Terry (knee) and Frank Lampard (calf).

Provisional squad: Cech, Ivanovic, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Cole, Bertrand, Mikel, Romeu, Ramires, Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Moses, Marin, Piazon, Torres, Sturridge, Turnbull.
