Fernando Torres is playing with confidence and that is why he is back in the scoring groove, according to Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez.

The much-maligned Spanish striker scored the first of his side's eight goals without reply against Aston Villa on Sunday, heading in a cross from just inside the box.

Revival

It was a goal that few would have said the 28-year-old was capable of scoring a month ago as he continued to fail to justify his £50million transfer fee, futaa.com.

As owner Roman Abramovich hoped, though, the arrival of Benitez, the man who brought Torres to England, has sparked a revival in the former Liverpool and Atletico Madrid hitman, who has now scored seven goals in his last six games to double his tally for the season.

“He's a striker. He needed to score goals. The team is doing well, he's having more chances, and he has more confidence as a result,” Benitez said.
