Fernando Torres has finally found his feet at Stamford Bridge.

Since Torres swapped Liverpool for London in 2011 for a staggering fee of £50 million, he has been the recipient of constant abuse from fans and journalists all over the world.

Last season though, Torres chipped in with 22 goals for Chelsea and also assisted seven. 

Torres also proved he was a big game player as he netted the first goal in  Chelsea's 2-1 victory over Benfica in the Europa League final clinching the title for the first time in Chelsea's history.

Torres seems to bring success to wherever he goes. Having won global success with his home nation Spain, Torres has been a member of the Spanish team that won the European Championships twice and won the World Cup once back in 2010. 

Torres was also named the top scorer in the Euros thus winning the Golden Boot in the tournament.

Torres might not have scored as much as many have predicted but his general play has been sensational. El Nino always gives 110% on the field and his displays have been filled with creativity and quality.

Torres has previously admitted that he had not found his best form while playing for Chelsea. 

Torres publicly stated in April 2013 that he has struggled at Chelsea, saying: "I want to do the things I used to do. I did them at Atlético, I did them at Liverpool, but I am not doing them at Chelsea." 

However, he vowed to "try his heart out" to regain his best form and fire in the goals once more for the Blues. 

Torres is beginning to win over the majority of Chelsea supporters and with the Blues being linked with the likes of Edinson Cavani, Andre Schurrle and Hulk, Torres will have to improve once more to be kept in the starting line-up.

Torres has impressed in spells this season and hopefully for Chelsea fans, he will carry his current form into next season.
