Torres at the double

Published Add your comment

Fernando Torres finally ended his goalscoring drought as his brace helped Chelsea book another visit to Wembley Stadium after a 5-2 FA Cup sixth round victory over Leicester at Stamford Bridge.

Early goals from Gary Cahill and Salomon Kalou set the Blues on their way as Roberto Di Matteo maintained his 100% winning start to his tenure as Chelsea boss. Torres added the third after 67 minutes to end a spell of 25 hours 41 minutes of football for Chelsea without scoring.

His second came five minutes from time as he flicked home a near-post header with Raul Meireles also scoring in the last minute. Jermaine Beckford and Ben Marshall grabbed the consolation goals for Leicester, who will now go back to trying to force themselves into the npower Championship play-off picture.
