Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou has backed Fernando Torres to come good at Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard is yet to hit the back of the net for the Blues since making his £50 million move, and in-truth has been a little out of sorts since returning from the World Cup with an injury in 2010.

However, their have been recent glimpses of 'El Nino' back to his best in recent matches, and his Ivorian teammate is confident the goals are just around the corner.

“He’s going to play and you can only have pressure on you if you’re not playing the next game and not scoring. He’s going to have the opportunity and he’s a top striker," said Kalou.

“I don’t think he has pressure – he’s a top striker and he has been through that kind of thing before. He has changed teams in the middle of the season, which is never easy, so I think he is going to need time to adapt.”


Torres could get another opportunity to break his Chelsea duck tomorrow, with the Blues holding a two-goal advantage against Copenhagen with the Danes traveling to London for the Champions League last 16, second leg.

Whilst a number of players have stated that the title is also within reach for the Blues, it will take a major blip from the club's rivals to claim the Barclays Premier League trophy and Torres will more likely be instrumental in the club's charge next season.
