If this wasn’t one of the best weeks Fernando Torres has had since he joined Chelsea, then it surely must be on the top five.
The Spaniard was coming off a great performance in the Champions League against Schalke 04 where he scored a brace that helped his team to get a very important win away from home, and he continued his stellar form today, netting the decisive goal in the dying minutes of the match against Manchester City.
The Blues were in control for the majority of the game and they were able to get ahead, thanks to a goal from Germany international Andre Schürrle in the first half, but Sergio Agüero evened things up for The Citizens early in the second period.
It seemed like the game was going to end up in a draw, but El Niño had something to say before the final whistle.
A miscommunication between Joe Hart and Matija Nastasic allowed Torres to score on an empty net, as he sent the home fans into raptures while also giving Chelsea a much needed win against one of the top teams in the league.
Torres scored his first goal in the Premier League at the perfect moment for The Blues, as they moved up to the second place and they seem like the only team that could mount a title challenge against an Arsenal side that has been on a staggering form to start the season.
A lot of that can be credited to Torres, who’s slowly rediscovering the form that made him one of the best strikers in the world only a few years ago.
