Chelsea fullback Cole: Torres thriving as our main man

Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole feels Fernando Torres is now thriving on being their "main man" in attack.

Torres created one and scored the other in last night's 2-0 win over Newcastle United.

England defender Cole declared: "Now he is the main main.

"He is full of confidence after winning the European Championship with Spain and he has scored a great goal here.

"We have lost Didier Drogba, who was a big, powerful presence up front. Sometimes we just used to knock it up to him. But now we've got to get the ball down and play a little bit more."
