Torres transfer saga end as El Nino returns home to face his former Club

Fernando Torres' much hyped to Chelsea has settled and now the Spanish striker will focus on this weekend's game against his former club Liverpool.

The new number 9 at Stamford Bridge will most likely make his debut after his 50 million dollar plus move to Chelsea in the winter transfer window. The former Anfield man has vowed not to celebrate if he happens to put his bad form behind him and score a goal on debut. Torres attributes this attitude to the Liverpool fans who haad treated him so well whilst he was at the club.

Liverpool have almost returned to top form, thanks to a splurge of cash on the transfer market. Suarez who made the move from Ajax was just one of the winter signings and he paid dividends scoring in his sides win during the week against Stoke.

Torres will have to compete with the likes of Drogba and Anelka for a starting position and will most likely start from the bench. But a desperate Chelsea may just start the new signing as they try to push back up the table and into contention for the League title.
