Fernando Torres continues his personal scoring run by netting the decider against Manchester City to the delight of everyone.
“I used to have a team-mate who told me every ball can be the most important ball of the game, and this is a clear example, a long ball and a misunderstanding and you have the ball to pass into the net.” - Fernando Torres
There could be no person happier than the goal scorer himself who has found a new sense of optimism through hard work.
Several chances were missed by the Spaniard, including one which hit the crossbar, but playing 100 per cent throughout the game was the difference maker for him.
"Sometimes the most important thing about a miss is to forget about it and carry on,' Torres said, 'and I was really happy to create this chance for Andre [Schurrle] to score his goal to make it 1-0 straight after this miss," Torres told chelseafc.com.
"The next action I hit the crossbar so I was feeling well and at the end I could score that late goal and forget the chance I missed in the first half, so it was a very positive goal for everyone."
Torres emphasised that his teammates must share the mind set of playing the game in their optimum capacity until the final whistle sounds.
"I used to have a team-mate who told me every ball can be the most important ball of the game, and this is a clear example, a long ball and a misunderstanding and you have the ball to pass into the net," he added.
"Belief is the key and sometimes goals are going to be great goals but sometimes goals are coming from small mistakes like this. If I didn't run for that ball I would not be able to score that goal, so the team has to show that belief from the first minute to the last every game."
"I think we controlled the game most of the time and created the more chances, especially in the first half, but Man City have great players like Aguero who can score a goal at any time but in the end we won a game we deserved to win, and we are happy because it is our first win against one of the contenders for the Premier League title."
The Blues are on a five-game winning run and has now climbed to the second spot of the English Premier League table, which boosts the morale of Torres as well as the entire squad.
"I am feeling good and with high confidence, and feeling better in the system we are playing with more space," he said.
"Hopefully we can keep improving as a team as it is just the beginning of the season and important games are coming."
"I felt the support for all the past and I am really happy for the fans, they can enjoy now with the team and with my goals and sometimes I feel they are even more happy with them than me, and hopefully they can see more of this, this season."
