Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is not worried by Fernando Torres’ goal drought and believes the Spaniard will score – eventually.

Torres joined Chelsea from Liverpool for a British record £50million on transfer deadline day.

But Torres has not hit the back of the net since joining the Blues, despite performances steadily improving.

The World Cup winner partnered Didier Drogba in the 3-1 victory over Blackpool, but did not score stretching his barren streak to seven games.

But Ancelotti is not concerned by the drought and is pleased with Torres’ overall team play.

“He is showing good movement; he showed good movement with Drogba in the first half,” said the Italian.

“I think they played well, it was a good combination at the start of the game.

“I didn’t ask them to play closer, I wanted them to spread the Blackpool defence.

“It is important he works for the team and he is doing that now and game by game he will improve and he will score.

“We are happy about his performance. He is a top scorer and he will score, this is not a problem.”
