Chelsea interim boss Rafael Benitez is confident that Fernando Torres's strike against Steaua Bucuresti will spur the striker back to form.
The 28-year-old scored his second goal in 20 games against the Romanian side but also missed a late penalty in the match, as his side advanced to quarter-finals of the Europa League.
"[The goal] was important for him," Benitez told reporters. "It was important - the main thing - for the team. We knew he was working really hard, he was training really well.
"Two days ago he was scoring a lot of goals in training. We knew he was close. Hopefully it will be the first of a lot."
The draw for the last eight of the Europa League will be made later today.
