Rafael Benitez has hailed Chelsea striker Fernando Torres as "amazing" - at defending corners.

Interim Blues boss Benitez attempted to deflect more criticism of Torres's wretched form in front of goal.

"It's not just scoring goals," Benitez said, discussing his fellow Spaniard's latest performance at West Ham. "We changed his position in corners, for example. If you analyse the corners against, he was amazing. Two or three times he's cleared the ball and afterwards was just doing man to man because it's what he had to do."
