Torres eyes end to goal drought

Fernando Torres admits he must start scoring for Chelsea as he looks finally to break his duck against Blackpool on Monday.

Torres has flopped in front of goal since his £50million move from Liverpool, drawing a blank in each of his four matches for the Barclays Premier League champions.

"I know I'm here to score goals," he told Chelsea TV.

"It's the job of the striker, so hopefully I can score the first and I'm sure it will be the first of many."

Torres has previously insisted it was always going to take time for him to settle at Stamford Bridge.

He revealed he is still finding his feet but believes he is beginning to adapt to Chelsea's style of play and is building up his match fitness following an injury-plagued 2010.

"Trying to settle here, but much better, much better fitness," he said.

"I felt the other day against Man United very good, sharp.

"So, waiting for the first goal and excited about that possibility.

"Hopefully, I can score against Blackpool."
