Fernando Torres Arrives in London to Play for Chelsea

CHELSEA FEBRUARY 2011 UPDATE & SCHEDULE

 

Chelsea currently sits in fourth place in the England Premier League behind Manchester, Arsenal, and Manchester City, and ahead of Sunderland, Tottenham Hotspurs and Liverpool. Man Utd leads the point table and have a 10 point lead over Chelsea United most recently defeated Sunderland 2-4 in a Premiership match. Their next Premier League match is against Liverpool on February 6th.

 

In the last hours of the winter transfer window, Chelsea was successful in their move to add Fernando Torres and David Luiz to their squad. Torres will play his debut match for Chelsea against Liverpool on February 6th - hoping to score at least one goal against his former club.

“I felt from last summer that I need to do a step forward in my career and for my ambition as a footballer. I am joining a team that is at the top level, there is not another level after Chelsea,” said 26-year-old Spanish international Torres of the transfer. The fee is reportedly an British record at over £50m for a five and a half year deal with the Chelsea.

Forward Torres will wear Chelsea #9 following in the footsteps of former Chelsea forwards Kerry Dixon, Roy Bentley, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Peter Osgood. The Spanish World and European champion also wore the shirt at Liverpool, in the World Cup in South Africa and at his previous club Atletico Madrid. Torres, born March 20, 1984, is a professional football player who also competes for Spain in World Cup soccer. Fernando Torres is a forward and is 6'1" and weighs 172 pounds.

In the January transfer window, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich made a lavish £76.5m outlay on Fernando Torres and David Luiz in an attempt to move up the Premier League ladder, despite the Russian owner claiming to support UEFA's policy of financial fair play.

 

Since 1994–95, only three clubs have won the Premier League title – Manchester United (nine of the club's eleven titles), Arsenal and Chelsea (three times each). Manchester United have not finished outside the top three since the formation of the Premier League. From the 1996–97 season onwards, the "Big Four" (Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United) have dominated the top four spots, and thus places in the UEFA Champions League. This year the “Big Four” teams at the top are challenged by heavily funded Manchester City and the Spurs.

 

Chelsea are in Champions League Group F with 15 points to date.

 

FA Cup holders Chelsea defeated Everton in a FA Cup fourth round replay, and will next play Reading.
