Torres still adjusting at Chelsea

SoccerNews in English Premier League 28 Feb 2011


Fernando Torres believes he is close to breaking his scoring drought for Chelsea as he continues to adjust to life at Stamford Bridge.

Torres joined the Blues for 50 million pounds from Liverpool in January, but has so far failed to impress since arriving in London.But the 26-year-old said his partnership with fellow strikers Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba will improve as he learns to adapt to Chelsea’s game style.”The strikers we have depend on the play of the rest of the team,” Torres told Chelsea’s official website.”With two lines of four the other day the team played really well and the balance was really good, compact and they did well, sometimes playing balls behind the centre-backs or sometimes between the lines, and Nico (Anelka) likes to play like this.” “It is my job to understand the game of Nico or the game of Didier Drogba, and to be involved in the routine of the team and know the quality of the players so that’s what I am trying to do now.”Carlo Ancelotti’s side face a season-defining clash against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, and a loss to the league leaders would snuff out their slim hopes of defending their Premier League crown. “This will be an interesting game because it can make us come back to fight for the title, it is one of the most important games of the season right now, and if we win this one we are closer to them and we have will still have one more game against them,” Torres said.”When you play against top sides they have top players and Man United are the same, they have brilliant centre-backs and always the motivation is high when you play against them.””You want to play well against these players to show you can do it, and Vidic and Ferdinand were always a big challenge for me, so I hoped they could both play.”

“Some people prefer big players not to be playing but I prefer to play against these kinds of players.”
