So, Fernando Torres not only scored yesterday but managed to do so with his first touch after coming on as a sub. Of course, he’s already scored this pre-season but that apparently doesn’t count although since it is pre-season we’re talking about maybe yesterday didn’t really count as far as anyone outside Chelsea is concerned.
