Jose Mourinho just gave an injury update ahead of Tuesday's match against West Brom, confirming that Fernando Torres will be available while John Terry will not.

Despite missing tomorrow's match, Mourinho expects that John Terry will be ready when we travel to Manchester this weekend.

I'd be surprised to see Torres start, as he's been out for long enough that I'd assume 90 minutes would be a stretch. That said, he'd be a welcome addition on a bench that has been light on good options up front.

Terry's absence will likely mean a second consecutive game of David Luiz and Gary Cahill in the center of the defense. Hopefully, it will also be a fifth consecutive clean sheet, and the eighth in nine contests played in 2014.
