Chelsea's Spanish forward, Fernando Torres has scored only nine league goals in 51 games since a 50 million pounds ($80.96 million) move from Liverpool in January 2011.

He seems much more confident and fit this campaign under the management of new Chelsea boss - Roberto de Matteo.

Torres scored in Chelsea's League Cup match against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday, bringing his goal total for the season to four.

Torres' Spanish friend - Arsenal's Mikel Arteta - talked about Torres on the eve of Saturday's Premier League clash.

"I don't like the way he has been treated because I have known him since we were 16, 17 and I really appreciate him," said Arteta.

"He is a friend of mine. Obviously, football is like that - it doesn't matter what you have done in the past, it is only what you have done in the last few weeks.

"He has been criticised. Mentally he is a really strong guy even if someone doubts him."

"When you play as a striker and they pay £50 million for you, you are under huge pressure," added Arteta, who also made the move from Merseyside to London when he joined Arsenal from Everton as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas.

"When the ball isn't going in the net, it is even more difficult because people always look at that.

"For a striker, sometimes it is not fair. For a midfielder or a defender it is a bit easier to adapt."

Arsenal want their first league defeat of the season on the leaders.

"Hopefully, he is going to get over that and it is going to become a better situation because it is not nice," he said.

"I talk to him a lot. When we were in Liverpool, we used to live next to each other and he is a really nice guy. Everyone would tell you the same.

"Even if he plays for Chelsea, I don't want something bad to happen to him. Obviously when it comes to the game tomorrow though, we are not friends."
