Fernando Torres Debuts For Chelsea – Chelsea Tickets

Fernando Torres

Fernando Torres debuted for Chelsea last weekend. Chelsea’s £50 million record signing striker says he is confident Chelsea still is in the running for top placement in the Premier League title race.

Torres was withdrawn after 66 minutes as Liverpool won 1-0 with a goal from Raul Meireles.

Liverpool deployed three central defenders and their placement limited the impact of Torres, Didier Drogba, and Nicolas Anelka.

“It was very difficult, Liverpool played a good game, with three at the back,” Torres said. “We were not expecting that and maybe they took advantage of that. I think the fair result was the draw, it was unfair to lose that game, but now we are looking forward to the next game and will keep fighting until the end.”

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has vowed to implement a new system with Torres.

Blues manager Ancelotti has already tinkered with the 4-1-2-3 formation that has been so successful for Chelsea this season, shifting to a 4-3-1-2, which promoted Torres into a striking pair with Didier Drogba, forcing Nicolas Anelka to withdraw slightly and play in the hole between midfield and attack.
