Fernando Torres insists it was always going to take him time to settle at Chelsea as his search for his first goal for the club continues.
Torres once again drew a blank in the dramatic Barclays Premier League win over Manchester United and has now gone four games without scoring since his record-breaking £50million move from Liverpool.
"It's important to understand the style of football your team is playing, how you are involved in the system and everything," Torres told Chelsea magazine.
"This always takes some time. But, I think, once you get it, everything becomes much easier.
"The important thing is to have different options in the way you play."
Torres was given free reign as a lone striker at Anfield but has yet to be indulged on that front by Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti, who has played him with a partner or in a three-man attack.
Torres said: "If you want to be a top player, you have to be able to play in all these situations and I'm sure here at Chelsea I will play in different positions sometimes.
"I'm ready for this because I want to play where the manager asks me to - I know the competition is high here."
