The Spain international sealed a 2-0 win for the west London side after midfielder Eden Hazard had opened the scoring in the 56th minute at the KC Stadium.
He is enjoying his football more than the last couple of years
It was the first time Torres had scored in back-to-back Premier League games since December 2012, and Blues boss Mourinho heaped praise on the striker.
“Fernando scored against Southampton, now he has scored again. He is enjoying his football more than the last couple of years,” said Mourinho.
“The goals are coming and he is doing what we want him to do: press defenders, hold the ball, wait for support, get behind defenders and he scored.
“It is important for him but more important for us.”
Mourinho added that he isn’t surprised by the Chelsea fans’ unwavering support for Torres despite his inconsistent form since a club-record £50m switch to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool in January 2011.
“Chelsea fans are like this. I remember in 2004 when we had Mateja Kezman and he scored his first (league) goal in December, but every time playing at Stamford Bridge people were supporting him,” Mourinho added.
“It helps players, especially in a difficult moment. Players do not feel the heat when things are not going well for them.”
