Move Aside Drogba, The Torres Revival Takes Shape

Torres has had to endure tough times since his transfer to Chelsea. Even if his desire to move was to win trophies, he obviously had not figured how difficult it would be to firstly, fit into a world-class team and secondly, to displace Didi Drogba.

The best striker in the Premiership, Fernando Torres had to deal with a trophy-ladened but ego-filled dressing room. And as far as world class strikers go, El Nino had to contend with the ill-fated Chelsea strikers' graveyard. And then there is the looming monster shadow of a defiant Drogba, seemingly oblivious to his diminishing powers.

So you see, Torres had to endure an environment completely different to the one he fondly remembered at Liverpool. Far away from the Anfield adulation he enjoys, he had to undergo a transformation to be successful in a club like Chelsea. So, to replace Drogba is to be like Drogba.

Against Leicester, Nando really did look the part. His acceleration was terrific, his vision exemplary and his contribution with two assists was telling. His two goals also had a Drogba-esque feel to them, a headed second goal and a slightly fortuitous toe poke first goal.

Still, they all count, and scoring two will give the Spaniard a massive confidence boost. The smiles returned and The Torres Revival finally takes shape.

Nando is finally winning over the Chelsea fans. It must have been heartwarming to see the Blues fans willing him on to score during the FA Cup match. His selfless displays and willingness to work hard are reasons that Blues fans have stuck by him.

When Drogba leaves at the end of this season, they clearly see Torres as the future of the club.

May The Torres Revival continue to gather steam. Next up, a brilliant hattrick against the Citizens?

Also I have my faith in Torres and we can expect that he can take the team in his shoulders but we need new blood in the team.
