Torres To Ease Eden Hazard’s Burden
At a point when it seemed Jose Mourinho’s Blues were in the lead of the title race, the Chelsea title rivals only looked like they were getting stronger as vital players started to come back from injuries.
Mourinho confirmed that Fernando Torres is back in shape and is all set to play West Bromwich Albion. No one knows at the moment how big of a role Torres will play against the Baggies as this is yet to be seen. However, his return is momentous. He re-entered at a very important period in the Premier League title race.
Everything seems to be falling into place at Stamford Bridge with Mourinho giving his best effort this season to play down any chance of Chelsea claiming English football’s ultimate prize.
Eden Hazard has never been in better shape his entire life and he looks worth every bit of £32 million player that he is. His manager is extremely proud and thinks that he has lived up to the high expectations as the “world’s best youngster”.
After a three week lay-off, Torres is finally fit again, reinforcing Chelsea’s choices in attack.
Manchester City has not been able to score a sufficient number of goals leading to a disappointment of their own high standards. They were unable to score in their last two outings and as a result they lost ground to the Blues.
Though Torres hasn’t exactly lived up to expectations at Chelsea since he moved to West London three years ago, he has made a quite a difference scoring goals at vital moments. He has proved himself worthy by scoring a couple goals this term. He also managed to score the winner against Manchester City. His goal unlocked a stubborn Saints rear-guard against Southampton on New Year’s Day.
