Liverpool had one of the best strikers in the world. However, since Fernando Torres joined Chelsea for a record British transfer fee of £50 million, his form been under scrutiny.
Once considered one of the best strikers in the world, the Spanish International used to play with great confidence and his strike rate was impeccable at Liverpool, as well as when he was with Spain for years.
During recent times, his form has deserted him and has been able to play well in patches only.
But Jose Mourinho has full faith in the forward’s abilities and is committed to getting the best out of the Spaniard.
Well, Mourinho’s faith has paid dividends as Torres is playing quite well. His link-up play with the midfield has been excellent so far this season.
He looks like a threat to create goal-scoring chance every time the ball is at his feet.
In the Champions League fixture against Schalke 04, he grabbed a brace and showed a glimpse of his past self: Decisive, precise and running at pace at defenders.
We all know that when Torres is on his game, he can be an absolute nightmare for the opposition, running in behind defenders.
Chelsea supporters can only hope Torres’ form continues, as he will be a vital part in the London-based club’s plan of winning the trophies Mourinho and Club Owner Roman Abramovic desire.
