Fernando Torres has rediscovered his goal scoring touch just in time for Chelsea’s crunch end-of-season clashes, according to Petr Cech.

The £50m striker went 25 games without scoring for club and country this season but has netted four goals in his last two games, including the decisive strike against Barcelona that booked the Blues’ place in the Champions League final.

Chelsea goalkeeper Cech feels the 28-year-old’s dry spell was a result of bad luck and is confident the Spain forward, who netted a hat-trick against QPR, will continue to deliver as the Blues gear up for the FA Cup and Champions League finals.

“Fernando has been playing well all season but so many times he was unlucky with chances, he created a lot,” Cech told Chelsea’s website. “On Sunday [against QPR] with those goals he was at the start of the [move] and it’s great for him to see the ball go into the back of the net.

“For me, he settled quickly but was unlucky not to score goals. Now it is good to see everyone in good shape and ready to compete because this is where it matters the most.”
