Chelsea boss Di Matteo: Torres fantastic for Cup win

Chelsea caretaker boss Roberto di Matteo insists Fernando Torres turned in a good performance for their FA Cup win over Birmingham City.

Juan Mata chose to take their spotkick, which was saved, ahead of the goal-shy striker.

Di Matteo said: "Fernando had a great game, fantastic game. Yes, he missed a chance but other players missed chances too. He had a fantastic game.

"In terms of the penalty, to be honest, that's the players' decision on the pitch.

"I was far away. We had two penalty takers but the players have to take that decision."
