Swansea City winger Pablo Hernandez believes that Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez has helped improve the form of Fernando Torres.

Swansea City winger Pablo Hernandez has admitted he is fearful that Chelsea striker Fernando Torres could have an impact when their respective sides meet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Despite scoring 20 goals, Torres has endured a mixed season, but he has improved since the arrival of manager Rafael Benitez, and Hernandez believes that the former Liverpool forward has improved under the 52-year-old's guidance.

The former Valencia player told Wales Online: "I think Rafa is a help for him. The best moments for Fernando were with Rafa at Liverpool. He is a manager who seems able to help Fernando.

"And I think you can see he has recovered his confidence in the last few months and games, and now is a better moment for Fernando.

"But I hope he has a quiet day against us. I said to him before the cup game, 'Do not score' and he didn't. I hope that happens again."

Hernandez has scored three times in 25 Premier League appearances in his first year in England.
