Chelsea boss Mourinho praises Torres despite scattergun form

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was pleased with Fernando Torres' performance in victory at Sunderland.

Torres missed three gilt-edged chances, but Mourinho was happy with the Spain international's contribution.

He said: "He worked fantastically for the team. He did fantastic work for them. He played against two very experienced defenders in Wes Brown and John O'Shea and gave them a fight.

"He opened spaces for the other guys. He missed chances, but he was there."
