Chelsea striker, Fernando Torres, scored the only Chelsea goal in their recent match with Manchester United.

Nicolas Anelka found the Spanish striker with a superb pass and Torres lifted the ball over De Gea to cut the score to 3-1 within the first minute of the second-half.

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas absolved Torres of any blame after his miss denied the Blues the chance of a last-gasp rally against Manchester United.

The former Porto boss’ managerial debut ended in a 3-1 defeat but things could have been very different had Torres, who did score just after half-time, not missed an open goal late in the second-half.

Wayne Rooney slipped and missed a penalty and Villas-Boas said, ‘It happened to Fernando and Rooney. It is nothing dramatic. Sometimes the ball goes in. Normally it is 3-2. At that point it might have given us a mental edge for the last 10 minutes’.

Fernando Torres looked fit and confident for most of the match.

He produced a goal to cut the score to 3-1 and his individual performance was as good as he has produced since making the move to London.
