Chelsea striker Fernando Torres scores his first hat-trick since September 2009 against Queens Park Rangers this afternoon.

Fernando Torres has found the net on three occasions during Chelsea's London derby against Queens Park Rangers this afternoon.

The Spanish striker scored twice during the opening 45 minutes at Stamford Bridge, before rolling in his third of the encounter in the 64th minute.

Torres last struck a hat-trick back in September 2009 against Hull City when he was playing for Liverpool.

It has capped a positive week for the Spanish international, who scored a late goal against Barcelona to help book Chelsea's place in next month's Champions League final against Bayern Munich.
