Rafael Benitez has admitted he does not know whether Fernando Torres can recapture his Liverpool form at Chelsea.

Interim Blues manager Benitez insisted he could improve the fortunes of Torres, who he helped become one of the best strikers in the world at Anfield and has flopped since his £50million move to Stamford Bridge.

Three Blues managers have failed to get Torres scoring regularly, but the man who knows his fellow Spaniard better than any of them said: "He's not exactly the same player now, because he was at maximum level at this time [at Liverpool]."
