The Blues have won their opening two Premier League matches to sit at the top of the table and Torres is urging his teammates to push on and record as many points in their early games just like champions Manchester City did last season.
"We can't lose early points because Manchester City showed last season that they didn't lose many. We need to start well," he told the London Evening Standard ahead of tomorrow's home clash with Newcastle United.
"It's always important to begin well and look at the table to see Chelsea at the top. Nine points in the first three games is a target we should have.
"It is important after eight to 10 games for the team to still be at the top because it means that is your position more or less."
