Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic feels Fernando Torres has finally found his goalscoring form and has given Chelsea a much-needed boost as the London club battles for a Champions League spot for next season.
Torres ended his six-month goal drought in the league when he scored in stoppage time in the club's 4-2 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.
"It was an important goal for him. Fernando has been going well and playing well all over the pitch," The Sun quoted Ivanovic, who scored two of his club's four goals, as saying.
"He's been doing everything for the team and I think he deserved that goal. He is a great player. Of course he has felt the pressure and so it was important for us to support him," the defender added.
More importantly, the Spaniard also played a part in the other goals as well, as he twice flicked on Juan Mata's corners for Ivanovic to score.
"We know how good he is. We've seen that every day in training. But at the same time, for him to score a goal was very important. But for us, we know how much he has given us. He doesn't just play for himself but he plays for the team. After the game, he didn't really say anything. But I went up to him and said, 'Thank you for the two assists'!'' added the Serbian.
