Cech: Brilliant Chelsea strikers coming into form at perfect time

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is delighted to see their much criticised strikers amongst the goals.Fernando Torres became the first Chelsea striker to score in an away league game for 13 months in the win at Southampton, which kept them within two points of leaders Arsenal.

The Spaniard's goal came three days after Samuel Eto'o hit the winner in the 2-1 victory over rivals Liverpool.

Cech believes Chelsea can compete at the top with their current forwards. "It is the first day of the year so great to start it with Fernando scoring like this. Hopefully the strikers will continue to bang goals in away from home.

"Samuel scored an important one at home against Liverpool and now Fernando has scored a very important one against Southampton, so it is great for them.

"Are they finding form at the right time? Yes. They have been working really hard for the team. Sometimes the stats are not the element, you need to look at how the player works for the team and tactically works during the game.

"They have both been brilliant and now they have got their rewards with a goal. Everybody is happy that they are scoring and will remind them about that."
