Fernando Torres says he is not suffering from a lack of confidence and knows that the goals are just around the corner.
Since moving from Liverpool for £50m, a current British transfer record, he has only scored one league goal – A record he will be looking to forget.
The Spaniard has come out and said: “Don’t worry, I didn’t forget how to score goals – I will score.
There have been comparisons made with Andriy Shevchenko who came to the Bridge with both a big price and a reputation for scoring goals.
Chelsea’s skipper John Terry has jumped to his defence: “It’s unfair, he had the injury he sustained at the World Cup and came into the season with that.
Before adding: “He’s happy even though the pressure is on him and he’s looking sharp.”
Torres will get to continue his hunt for form today at 12.30 when the Blues take on Kitchee SC.
