Torres Eyes Return to Form against Former Club


Fernando Torres couldn't pick a better time to signal a long-awaited return to his blistering form of old when Chelsea hosts his former club Liverpool in the standout match in the English Premier League this weekend.

Since making a club-record 50-million-pound (then $81 million) move to Chelsea in January, the Spain striker has scored just three times in the league and has often looked bereft of confidence in front of goal.

With fourth-place Chelsea lagging behind Manchester clubs City and United — and even Newcastle — in the standings, Sunday would be an ideal time to reproduce the devastating form he showed for Liverpool from 2007-09.

Torres says "whenever I have had difficult times, I look at myself and say, 'Yes, I can get back to my level.'"
