Man City boss Mancini happy for Torres over Chelsea scoring breakthrough

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says he's happy for Fernando Torres after he broke his scoring duck.

City will have to deal with a fired-up Fernando Torres, who finally ended a long barren run with a double in Chelsea's FA Cup win over Leicester City on Sunday.

Mancini said: "I am happy for Torres, I like him as a guy and a player. He scored again because he deserved this.

"I don't know what will happen tomorrow but I am happy for him.

"But we know tomorrow we play not against Fernando, but against Chelsea. Chelsea are a top team."
