Fernando Torres can play in opener - Andre Villas-Boas

New Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas says Fernando Torres is fit to play in their Premier League season-opener against Stoke on Sunday, despite suffering mild concussion on Wednesday.

The striker was taken to a Bari hospital after a 14th-minute collision in Spain's 2-1 defeat by Italy.

Villas-Boas also denies he is the league's highest-profile face at the moment, but does not mind the comparisons with former Blues boss Jose Mourinho.
