Rafael Benitez: Fernando Torres not guaranteed FA Cup start

Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez says he will assess Demba Ba before deciding whether Fernando Torres will play in the club's FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City on Sunday.

Torres scored his third goal in three matches in Chelsea's 3-2 defeat by Rubin Kazan and Benitez says the Spanish striker is "working hard and creating chances".

Despite losing in Russia, Chelsea progressed to the semi-finals of the Europa League and Benitez says he "gives credit to the players" for getting through but adds they must defend better.
