Tony Cascarino believes Fernando Torres has hit another level under Jose Mourinho, reports talkSPORT

Torres, who scored the Blues' winning goal against Manchester City yesterday, has struggled to replicate his form from his Liverpool days at Chelsea, however has impressed under Mourinho this season. 

When at Liverpool, the Spaniard was recognised as one of the world's greatest footballer, however, after signing for the London club in 2011 for £50 million, Torres has struggled to reach the same heights.

But with Mourinho now at the helm at Stamford Bridge, Torres looks to be getting back to his best. 

And Cascarino believes the striker is full of confidence and looking a new player under the 'Special One'. 

Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show, Cascarino said: “His performances in the last three or four games have been excellent.

“He’s a completely different player at the moment. He’s found half a yard of pace, that’s probably down to confidence.

“If he continues his good form he’s going to get goals and he’s going to continue to win games for Chelsea. The hunger he’s shown and desire to win games was all there. There was no waving of his arms and stopping.

“Certainly since Mourinho’s returned to the club he’s lifted his game to another level.”

The striker will be hoping to continue his strong form if selected for the Blues squad that travel to Arsenal in the Capital One Cup tomorrow, however both sides are expected to make a number of changes.
