Liverpool hero Jan Molby says Fernando Torres is the biggest obstacle to Chelsea's title quest.

Misfiring striker Torres, 28, comes face to face with his former club Liverpool today in a crunch top-flight clash at Stamford Bridge.

Molby, 49, told the Daily Star Sunday: “I just don’t fancy Chelsea to win the Premier League title this season ­because I always felt that their season would hinge on whether Torres could score 20-plus goals and that is not looking at all likely.

“Chelsea’s downfall this ­season will be having Torres as the main striker and an over-reliance on their other attacking players.

“He should be pretty close to ten goals ­already at this stage of the season, and he’s not looking like a man capable of leading a team to the Premier League title in such a crucial ­position.”
