Roberto Di Matteo has leapt to the defence of Fernando Torres again after former Chelsea boss Ruud Gullit put the boot into the misfiring striker.

Di Matteo denied £50million man Torres was enduring another crisis of confidence after managing barely a shot on target in his last three matches, all of which the Blues were unable to win.

The Chelsea boss said: "We're happy with him. Even when he doesn't score, he provides and works hard for the team and he's always an outlet for us."
