Torres centre-stage as Chelsea win

Published Add your comment

Fernando Torres scored again for Chelsea but his rash sending-off will attract more attention as the 10-man Stamford Bridge outfit swept aside Swansea 4-1.

Sunday's defeat at Manchester United had seen £50million man Torres score for only the second time in his Blues career before producing one of the worst open-goal gaffes in Premier League history.

He found the net on Saturday with another fine finish before seeing red for inexplicably diving in studs first on Mark Gower in between two Ramires goals which were followed by Ashley Williams' consolation and a comeback goal for Didier Drogba.
