Spanish centre-forward Fernando Torres dedicates his recent goals to Chelsea's supporters.

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has thanked the club's supporters for sticking by him since he signed on at Stamford Bridge in January.

The Spaniard, who cost the Blues £50m from Liverpool, has scored just three competitive goals for the club, a statistic that has led to many question whether he will be able to recapture his best form.

However, two of Torres' three goals for the club have come in the last couple of weeks and the 27-year-old has dedicated those strikes to the fans.

"The first six months for me at Chelsea have been very, very difficult and I have been struggling," he told Chelsea TV.

"I have always had the support of the fans.

"From the first day till now, I feel the support so it's nice to start scoring for them."

Torres scored before being sent off during Chelsea's 4-1 victory over Swansea City on Saturday.
