Roman Abramovich to splash out �50 million for his services after netting twice in his last two games, and he is looking to pay the club's supporters back with some good form.
Torres told Chelsea TV: "The first six months for me at Chelsea have been very, very difficult and I have been struggling, and I have always had the support of the fans.

Torres was dismissed against Swansea after his goal because of a dangerous tackle on midfielder Mark Gower.
