Andre Villas-Boas has said that misfiring Chelsea frontman Fernando Torres is mentally ready to take on Manchester United this afternoon and end his recent goal drought.
The Spanish forward has failed to find the net since October, despite a recent extended run in the side because of Didier Drogba's absence at the Africa Cup of Nations.
"Off the field, mentally he is ready, he knows his responsibility, he knows what he has to do," said Villas-Boas ahead of Sunday afternoon's visit of United.
"On the field and on the training ground, we try and work on his movement. That's the only thing we can do and we have been for quite some time."
The Portuguese coach however said that one goal for Torres would not be enough to ease the pressure and is expecting a run of goalscoring form from the 27-year-old.
"I think eventually we could say that a goal will trigger it all but we have to wait and see because there needs to be continuity after that."
Torres will be hoping to make amends for his glaring miss in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford earlier this season.
