Petr Cech believes that teammate Fernando Torres is rediscovering his form.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech believes that Fernando Torres is getting back to his best following the striker's performance against Stoke City at the weekend.

The £50m signing from Liverpool failed to find the net during the 0-0 draw at the Britannia Stadium, but his display drew plaudits from many match reports.

Cech revealed that the Spaniard has benefited from having a pre-season campaign with the Blues.

"It has made a huge difference that he had a pre-season with us," said the keeper.

"Sometimes when you come for such a huge amount of money to a different team and city everything changes and there is a lot of pressure.

"Now he has got to know the players and the way that we play. He was brilliant against Stoke and he deserved to get a goal."

Torres has scored just one competitive goal since his January arrival.
