Horrible, horrible performance. Torres was painful to watch and this if the first time I say it, but I'm losing patience with him. Anyway, it's nice to see Ash scoring again after 2 seasons!

yes ur right with the performance but the important thing is the 3 points

Agreed, always tough when you play a team like Stoke.

I can see this going in one of two ways:

A) Torres gets out of slump, hits form again, problem solved.

B) Torres fails to get better, Sturridge is used more often, and a player like Cavani or Falcao is bought in the winter.

I really want it to be option A because I'm a Torres fan, but if he doesn't pick up the slack soon, there's really nothing that can be done.
We've got some big games coming up within the next few weeks, so it's now or never for Torres unfortunately.

Yeah, he seems to be really moody. If things are going well he'll play well but gets discouraged easily.

Di Matteo looks to be sticking with him though. I just wonder how deadly we'd be if we had Falcao with this midfield behind him.

I wouldn't say it was a horrible performance but we lacked a cutting edge up front. The important thing, like mentioned below is we got the 3 points against a tough Stoke team.

Will be interesting to see how the table starts to take shape in the upcoming 2-3 weeks, Chelsea are doing fine right now, just could be doing better. Tomorrow's matches will be incredible!
