Ancelotti: Torres drought will end soon

08 March 2011 08:30
Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is confident striker Fernando Torres will end his goal drought soon enough despite the £50million striker drawing another blank at Blackpool on Monday evening. The Blues won 3-1 thanks to two goals from Frank Lampard and one from John Terry, with Jason Puncheon adding a late consolation for the Seasiders. However, Torres - playing up front with Didier Drogba - hardly had a chance all night and never looked like coming close to scoring, meaning he has now gone five matches, a total of 406 minutes, without opening his account since his deadline-day move from Liverpool. "He is showing good movement; he showed good movement with Drogba in the first half," said Ancelotti. "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."
