Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is convinced Rafa Benitez can end his time in charge with the Europa League trophy.

Benitez, who was appointed in November after Roberto Di Matteo's side exited the Champions League, now has the chance to finish the season on a high and Torres is optimistic.

"It's never easy to change the manager in the middle of the season," Torres said. "It happened to us last year and we won the Champions League.

"It happened this season again with Robbie and when Rafa came. We know each other from our time in Liverpool. It was a great time for everyone, but the situation at Chelsea is different.

"It is another club, different players, different mentality.

"It has not been an easy season for anyone, but I think we have improved as a team and we are all focused on the same targets.

"We still have one trophy to fight for and to finish in the top four so let's talk after the season about whether it has been good or bad."
