Chelsea paid £50m to sign Fernando Torres from Liverpool back in 2011, and the Spaniard flopped badly at Stamford Bridge, looking a shadow of his former self.

Ivanovic, meanwhile, netted again in this weekend’s draw against Burnley, making it five goals for the season for the versatile defender, who is also on 19 league goals for the club in total.

One more strike and the 30-year-old will be level with Torres, and it would be no surprise if he ended up moving ahead of his old team-mate this season.
