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 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."
