QPR winger SWP: Barcelona goal will do great things for Chelsea's Torres

QPR winger Shaun Wright-Phillips believes Fernando Torres has met his £50 million Chelsea price-tag.

SWP says Torres' goal against Barcelona on Tuesday proves he is worth every penny of the £50million Blues paid Liverpool.

The QPR winger, who cost Chelsea £21m from Manchester City seven years ago, said: "It's not the price tag that weighs down on you, more the expectation that goes with it.

"If it wasn't for the players around me and Jose Mourinho, it would have been much harder.

"Fernando gets into the right positions. Perhaps now it'll all click and he'll be back to normal."
