Since signing for Chelsea in 2011, Fernando Torres hasn't had much luck on the goal scoring front. The Spaniard hasn't hit the form he once had at previous club Liverpool.
However in the past few weeks, it looks like that the old form of Fernando Torres may have returned. Putting spirited performances in against many clubs has silenced the doubters and given Torres a new lease of life at Stamford Bridge.
During Chelsea's 1-1 draw away at Tottenham Hotspur, Torres showed highlights of his previous self. However, this great performance turned sour as he was sent off after a challenge with Jan Vertonghen.
In their next game, Torres only had 10 minutes of football under his belt when he was taken off after picking up an injury. In the 10 minutes against Steaua Bucuresti he played, Torres put in a committed performance.
After picking up an injury, Torres subsequently missed Chelsea's next 2 games; against Norwich and Cardiff. Both games were won by Chelsea.
Torres returned against Schalke in the Champions League and showed the quality he has. Scoring 2 goals, and hitting the word work on numerous occasions. Torres was close to a hat-trick, but it didn't happen.
Chelsea vs Man City was the perfect game for Fernando Torres to showcase the possible return of his fabled Liverpool form. And he gladly delivered. After missing an early sitter, Torres set up Andre Schürrle to score his first Chelsea goal. And in the dying moments of the game, Willian sent a lofted ball that somehow landed to Torres who scored the winner and sent Stamford Bridge into raptures.
Could the possible return of the allured Fernando Torres form motivate Chelsea to a Premier League title win? Only time will tell.
