The Chelsea striker, Fernando Torres, has said that he is very happy with the way he is playing in the current season. Torres has looked in terrific form in the matches that he has played in the ongoing season so far. Torres didn’t manage to perform well in the last season. But, it seems that he has learnt from his mistakes and has done his homework pretty well. He is looking a completely different player in this season. He is looking confident and creating much more opportunities this time around.
In the last season, Didier Drogba was the senior striker of Chelsea and Torres had struggled to get regular first team opportunities.
But, Drogba has left Chelsea this summer to join the Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua. So, Torres has been starting the matches for Chelsea in the ongoing season and he has been delivering for the club.
Torres scored a goal in the Community Shield match against Manchester City at Villa Park. Chelsea didn’t win that match, but, that goal gave Torres a whole lot of confidence. He looked in good nick in Chelsea’s opening match of the Premier League against Wigan Athletic.
He found the net in the next match against Reading to help his team win the match by 4-2. However, that was a controversial goal and the television replay showed that Torres was in an offside position when he kicked the ball.
As per Torres, it’s wonderful that he has started the season on a good note, but, he its important not to get complacent and keep working hard. These are the early days in the season and he wants to score some more goals in the further matches.
On being asked whether the team is missing Drogba, Torres said that Drogba is a fantastic player and he performed brilliantly for Chelsea in the last season. But, the team has to move ahead without him now. The team’s performance has been good in the current season so far and hopefully, the team would keep doing well in the upcoming matches.
