Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has praised the focus of his teammates following their progress through to the Europa League final.

The Blues defeated Basel 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night to give them a 5-2 aggregate triumph against their Swiss opponents.

"In the first half we did not perform in the best way and at half time we agreed about that," Torres told ITV Sport. "It is about concentration and mentality and we showed that in the second half and we have to take that forward for the future."

Chelsea will face Benfica in the final in Amsterdam on May 15 after the Portuguese side beat Fenerbahce in their semi-final.
