Andre Villas-Boas believes that Fernando Torres needs more luck in front of goal after his latest failure.

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has claimed that Fernando Torres needs some luck to improve his goalscoring form.

Torres missed a golden opportunity during the 0-0 draw against Norwich City on Saturday but Villas-Boas refused to criticise his £50m striker.

Villas-Boas told Sky Sports News: "He had a good couple of chances, and for you to have chances you have to position yourself to have those good chances and he was there present. With a little bit more luck he will find the back of the net.

"I think we are in the top three for teams creating goalscoring chances, it's just finding that efficiency. It's been happening all season.

Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League.
