Chelsea favourite offers helping hand

Published Add your comment

Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton is confident Fernando Torres can rediscover his goalscoring touch, and claims the Spaniard needs some luck to hit the goal trail once again.

Torres has scored just once since his £50 million move from Liverpool during the January transfer window.

Sutton underwent a similarly difficult spell during his one-year Chelsea career, notching just one league goal against Manchester United, but according to the former Blackburn man, Torres can be a hit at Chelsea.

“I struggled. I didn’t start particularly well there. There are similarities in that respect," he said.


“I thought he played particularly well in the first game of the season at Stoke. He just needs a bit of luck - he is still a top player. Maybe he just needs something to go his way.

“I don’t know whether the manager [Andre] Villas-Boas knows what his best team is yet and who to pair him up with or whether they go three up top. He just needs a break.

"You don’t lose class. He’s certainly a class player and he’s proved that year in year out, up until last season.”

Chelsea have bolstered their forward line this summer with the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Anderlecht, while Juan Mata has joined from Valencia.

Torres scored his only Chelsea goal for the club during last season's victory over West Ham United.
