Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has scoffed at the critics of their new-look midfield.Eden Hazard, Oscar and Juan Mata all played in victory at Arsenal, despite claims they couldn't perform as a unit.

Torres defiantly declared: "They are not experts."

He added: "If you have great players, you have to use them. That gives you more chances to score and to win.

"Arsenal are a great team in possession but we were not scared to keep the ball.

"Also, this is the best way to defend, and this is one of the main reasons why Chelsea are not conceding too many goals, because we have the ball and we do it with quality.

"So why can't all of these kinds of players play together?"
