Torres was always going to start scoring - Chelsea's Ivanovic

Branislav Ivanovic always knew that Fernando Torres would snap out of his barren goalscoring run at Chelsea.

The £50million signing netted twice in the 5-0 Champions League rout of Genk last night to make it four in his last four Blues appearances but it is no surprise to Ivanovic who was also amongst the scorers at Stamford Bridge.

"I always said there is no question about Fernando Torres because he is really great," the Serbian said.

"He showed every day his professionalism on the training ground, how he is working hard for the team and everyone is really happy when the ball comes to him.

"As a team, we expect more goals from him this season.

"It is important to have the big squad and the big players who can decide games.

"Fernando showed his quality in his play and how he will fight for the team. We are happy with that."
