Cech: Torres in the form of his life

The under-fire Chelsea striker put in a match-winning display against Manchester City on Sunday, and the Stamford Bridge goalkeeper believes the Spaniard's career is back on track.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech believes that Fernando Torres is in the form of his life after finally hitting the goal trail for the Premier League club.

The Spain international striker has consistently come under fire since making a 50 million pound switch to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool in 2011, in particular for his perceived below-par goal return.

However, the return of Jose Mourinho to Stamford Bridge has seen a revival for the forward, and after taking his season's tally to five with the winner in the 2-1 victory over Manchester City on Sunday, Cech believes Torres is back to his best.

"This is the debate everybody's been having for a long time," Cech told Chelsea TV. "There were so many games when Fernando was absolutely brilliant, but because he didn't score everybody's saying 'Oh, he didn't score'.

"Now he's scoring goals, he's making goals, he's playing as well as he has during his life."
