Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has hailed the free-scoring form of Fernando Torres.

Only Frank Lampard has contributed more Chelsea goals in 2012 than Torres's seven.

"Fernando has been playing well all season but so many times he was unlucky with chances, he created a lot," Cech told "On Sunday with those goals he was at the start of the [move] and it's great for him to see the ball go into the back of the net.

"For me he settled quickly but was unlucky not to score goals. Now it is good to see everyone in good shape and ready to compete because this is where it matters the most."
