Striking difference

Since arriving from Liverpool in January, Fernando Torres has gone 817 minutes -- 10 games for Chelsea and one for Spain -- without finding the net. In his debut season at Liverpool, 2007-08, the striker scored 33 goals in 46 games, and his longest run without scoring lasted just three games. Torres scored a total of 81 goals in 141 appearances for Liverpool, including netting eight in 20 Champions League matches. Since moving to Stamford Bridge, the Spaniard has managed just six shots on target in his first 10 matches for Chelsea in all competitions.
