Terry has warned today's opponents West Ham they could face a different Torres.
He told the Sunday Mirror: "That's a big sign - him grabbing the ball and taking it in the first place. Obviously, he's a little bit short of confidence but to see him grab the ball, that's maybe the change that he needs. Scoring the goal was great for him as well.
"It only takes that one goal or something to happen for him to really kick on, but he's putting in a shift for the team as well.
"Sometimes that doesn't get picked up as much as it should do.
"You know what it's like for strikers. Mentally he has had to be very strong - and he is.
"He has got the full support of the fans and the players. It will always remain that way.
"We are eager for him to score goals. He will certainly get the support and the assists from the quality that we have in the side."
