Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has been credited with getting striker Fernando Torres scoring again but the Spanish tactician has been impressed with the selfless work his compatriot is doing for the team.

"It is not easy for him to fight against two centre-backs but he creates space for (Juan) Mata and I think the understanding between the two is very good," said Benitez.

"He is doing a great job for the team. Sometimes it is not about just scoring goals, it is creating the space for other players."
