Fernando Torres admits he needs to come good for Chelsea. Torres has scored just four goals in 12 appearances so far this term but says the Chelsea fans continue to back him. And the 27-year-old admits it's now time to start paying them back.

"It's not new to have difficulties," he said. "You can go through difficult times and I look at myself and say I can reach a higher level.

"All that is needed, above all, is to work hard. If you work hard and give everything you can you will get the breaks in the end. I have a debt to the crowd that has always supported me and I will never give up."
