Torres: 'Now I can enjoy playing'

Fernando Torres reacts to scoring his first goal for Chelsea.

Fernando Torres has admitted that he now has "less pressure" after scoring his first goal for Chelsea.

The Spaniard ended a 14-game drought yesterday, scoring in the 84th minute after coming on for Didier Drogba. The Blues went on to win 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.

"Fourteen games waiting for the first goal, it was not the beginning I was expecting when I signed," Torres said after the game. "I kept working and it's thanks to all my teammates because it was because of them that I scored. They have been looking for me all the time in the last games and finally I can score. There's less pressure for me now, and now I can enjoy it and we can see if we can finish the season right."

Torres also thanked the Chelsea fans for their "patience" while he found his feet. "[They have been] showing their support every game when they follow the team away and at Stamford Bridge," he added. "I had more anxiety for them than for me because I wanted to score to show them I could and hopefully this is the first of many."
