Fernando Torres would have no qualms scoring against Liverpool if he makes his Chelsea debut in Sunday's Premier League clash against the Reds at Stamford Bridge.

By sheer coincidence, this weekend's game could be Torres' first for his new club following his record-breaking £50 million move from Anfield.

The 26-year-old has not asked to be left out to avoid risking the wrath of his former club's fans, some of whom burned replica shirts bearing his name shortly before his switch to west London was sealed.

"It is like destiny," Torres said of the prospect of playing on Sunday.

"It is not perfect for me, but we will see what happens and I only have good words about Liverpool. They made me a top player and gave me the chance to play at the top level.

"I will never say anything bad about Liverpool. I have been very happy there, but now the history is different and I am playing for Chelsea."

He added: "If I have the chance to play, I will do my best for Chelsea and hopefully I can score."
