Chelsea boss Benitez defends Torres after another flat performance

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez defended Fernando Torres after another flat performance in their stalemate with Manchester City.

Torres lasted the full 90, but struggled to make an impact.

Benitez said: "You could see he was trying very hard.

"The team has to help Fernando and create more chances, and he will score goals.

"You cannot expect a striker scoring just on his own, so we have to create more and better chances for him with the players we have."
