Benitez delighted with form of Chelsea striker Torres

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez is delighted with the form of Fernando Torres.

Six in five games is by far the most sustained run of the 28-year-old's Stamford Bridge career and it has co-incided almost exactly with his reunion with former Anfield boss Benitez.

"Two or three things that we are doing for some players are really good," Benitez said, claiming the sharpness in the majority of his players was now "much better".

"Fernando is one of the examples."

He added: "He's scoring goals and the team is winning and playing well, so he's really happy, not just because he's scoring goals but also because the team's doing well."

Despite the clear impact Benitez has made on Torres, he played down the extent of his own influence on his fellow Spaniard.

"I think that the team has an influence on him because the team is doing well, so the team is playing better, creating more chances," he said.

"So Fernando is taking more chances."
