Torres Scores Double – Chelsea in FA Cup Semi-Finals

Fernando Torres shone on the pitch for Chelsea scoring a double as Chelsea FC moved into the FA Cup semi-finals. Last season, Torres made a £50million move from Liverpool-Anfield.

Torres had a part in all five goals against Leicester City. El Nino scored two, played the final pass for goals by Salomon Kalou and Raul Meireles and won the corner that led to Gary Cahill heading a winner.

Fernando Torres ended his goal-drought with a brace against Leicester City!

Torres’ barren spell lasted 25 hours, 41 minutes and stretched a staggering 151 days – since a double for Chelsea against Genk in the Champions League.

‘I needed those goals, I’d been working so hard. I found the net so it’s a good day for me, I feel happy.

‘I think maybe this season I am playing at a very good level but I was not scoring goals in this period and the job of the striker is to score goals.

‘So if you don’t do it then the people think you are playing badly but for me the main thing is the support of the people.

‘They have all been with me. The team-mates, the staff. I feel the confidence of the manager now and obviously it’s a good time for me and for Chelsea.’

“He’s a tremendous player, a fantastic guy too. A team player who we value very much. He plays hard and tries hard; he had a great game on Tuesday and the only thing missing was a goal, but I don’t really care about that as long as the team win,” said Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo.
