Interim boss Rafael Benitez predicts Chelsea's fans will fall back in love with Fernando Torres again.

Torres was hailed as the club's saviour when he arrived at Stamford Bridge two years ago for a whopping £50million fee, but he has struggled to live up to expectations. Part of the reason behind Benitez's appointment was to get the striker back to his best, but Torres still looks a shadow of the hitman who tore the best defences in Europe apart while at Liverpool.

Benitez told a press conference: "The fans loved Torres when he was scoring and giving everything. They will love him again when he starts scoring goals again. They will appreciate the effort."
