Eden Hazard: Stop blaming Fernando Torres for Chelsea failures

Published 19 Comments

Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard has come to the defence of his under-fire teammate Fernando Torres.

The £32million summer signing believes Torres has been unfairly treated by critics of the Stamford Bridge and insisted the Spaniard would come good again.

Hazard even claimed Chelsea’s £50million record signing was criticised more than any other player in football and feels he has to deal with greater pressure.

The Blues winger then voiced his confidence that Torres would stay with Chelsea and continue to find the net.

“He's the most criticised player in the world. When we play bad they all say that it is his fault,” he reportedly told French newspaper l’Equipe.

“However, he will remain with us and he will continue to make a lot of goals for us.”

Torres has failed to fire in the Premier League this season only scoring seven times but has been in good form in the Europa League of late.

While much criticism has been thrown at him for failing to rediscover the devastating form he showed while at Liverpool, Torres has managed to score 19 goals in all competitions this season.

The next step for Torres will be to get his league form going once again, as the fight for a Champions League spot is getting ever tighter and Chelsea will need all the help they can get in the race for a top four spot.
