Chelsea assistant manager Eddie Newton reveals Fernando Torres is feeling' 'positive' after the Blues forward scored against Wolves in the Capital One Cup.

Chelsea ran riot at Stamford Bridge last night, hitting six past a much-changed Wolves team and progressing into the fourth round of the competition.

And Torres was back on the scoresheet for the Blues, firing a second-half header past Dories De Vries. After a strong start to the season, the Spaniard had threatened to suffer another dip of form and hadn't found the net since late August, but Torres got in on the act against a poor Wolves side.

And Blues assistant Eddie Newton revealed Torres was feeling a lot sharper after a prolonged run in the team.

"Nando's positive," said Newton in the Daily Star. "We're always talking with him. He's feeling a lot sharper. The goals will come. You can't expect it to be a flood all of a sudden. We just want consistency over the season."

Torres found the back of the net against Reading and Newcastle early on in the season, but failed to score against QPR, Stoke and Juventus.

It led to speculation that he was slipping back into last season's form, but the Spaniard allayed those fears with last night's goal.

Gary Cahill, Ryan Bertrand, Juan Mata, Oriol Romeu and new signing Victor Moses also scored for Chelsea in a one-sided match.

The Blues face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday as they look to remain top of the Premier League table.
