Spaniard concentrating on Premier League title rather than goals

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has denied claims that he is worried by his lack of goals and is instead concentrating on the club’s push for the Premier League title.

The World Cup winner failed to net again during Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Manchester City at the weekend, extending his barren run to seven games without scoring since joining the club.

Torres maintains he is confident of ending the drought soon but is unconcerned, despite growing media pressure.

Speaking to reporters ahead of Spain’s Euro 2012 qualifier against Czech Republic, Torres said: “I am not anxious about the fact that I haven't scored my first goal for Chelsea.

“This is an issue for the papers, not for me.

"I am confident that the goal will soon come, but it is more important that Chelsea win than I score."

The former Atletico Madrid and Liverpool man believes Chelsea are still in with a chance of successfully defending the league championship they won last season.

He continued: “I came to Chelsea to win titles and make the most of my career.

"I would not count Chelsea out of the title race in the Premier League. There is still a chance.

"The Champions League game against Manchester United will be hard because they are the worst possible draw.

"The situation is 50/50, though, and we can go through.

"I am a fan of [Sir Alex] Ferguson because he is a coach that fights for victory, like [Pep] Guardiola, [Jose] Mourinho or [Rafa] Benitez.

"It is a delight for any player to work with this kind of coach and feed off their success."
