Hat-trick hero Fernando Torres always knew the goals would flow after the Spaniard collected the match ball following Chelsea's 6-1 home drubbing of QPR. Much criticised for his lack of goals since joining the Blues from Liverpool for £50m, the Spanish striker has now got four in two matches and looks back to his best.

"I am very happy. I knew if I worked hard the goals would come," Torres told Sky Sports.

"It's the same for the team - we are playing more as a team now. Reaching the Champions League final was important, but we also want to finish in the top four.

"We showed we were focused today from the first minute after Daniel Sturridge's goal."
