Torres talks up return to form
[.[views].], BY ClubCall
Striker Fernando Torres believes normal service has been restored after a successful end to a turbulent season.
The 29-year-old has endured more famine than feast in front of goal since his £50million January 2011 move from Liverpool, but netted his sixth goal in six Europa League appearances as the Blues won the trophy with a 2-1 win over Benfica in Amsterdam on Wednesday night.
"It's been a good season for me," Torres told Chelsea TV. "Top scorer in the team, winning a trophy, scoring in the final. Things are becoming normal."
Torres, who will bid for his first Barclays Premier League goal since December in Sunday's final game of the season at home to Everton, has now netted 21 times this term.
Chelsea, the 2012 Champions League winners, began the season in contention for seven trophies; the Europa League was the unexpected eighth and final opportunity for success, which arrived courtesy of Branislav Ivanovic's late winner.
Torres said: "We were expecting to win much more this season. We were playing for finals and it's not been easy. At the end I think we can say it's a good season, but we're looking forward to the next one."
