Chelsea captain John Terry has revealed that Fernando Torres is showing good form in preseason.
The west Londoners played their first official pre-season friendly on Saturday, where former Chelsea defender Tal Ben Haim’s own goal earned them a 1-0 victory over Portsmouth.
Torres’ cross forced the Israel international to head into his own net and Terry believes the £50million striker will be at his best next season after a poor start to life in west London.
Terry said : “He backs himself,”.
“He realises from the World Cup he had a slight injury and carried that towards the end of last season.
“He feels fresh, he’s happy. He’s fully settled. I’m certainly looking for him to get double figures goals wise.
“He was still good at times last year. He’s a world-class player and the price tag is a big weight to carry on your shoulders.
“He’s got all the ability in the world. He’s very quick and a great finisher.
“We’re delighted to have him and if he can bring goals along with what we already have then fantastic.”
