Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is set to be out of action for around two weeks after pulling up in the warm-up ahead of the Blues’ 4-0 win over Tottenham, Jose Mourinho has confirmed.
Samuel Eto’o started in the Spaniards place and opened the scoring before winning the penalty that made it 2-0.
Then Demba Ba came off the bench to bag a quickfire brace to complete the rout.
Mourinho said: “It was muscular, a big surprise because he didn’t go to the national team, he stayed with us and had his rest and training.
“Sometimes these things happen. In the warm-up he felt something in his groin, with muscles even with a little thing you are out for a couple of weeks.
“We lost him but the other two scored goals today, that’s the reason we want to have three strikers in the squad. For strikers, a goal is always a vitamin.”
