Picture + Video: Fernando Torres Back To His Best With Brace Against Schalke

Chelsea moved to the top of Group E after beating German outfit Schalke 04 3-0 comfortably at the Veltins Arena in the Champions League group stage tie.


Spain international Fernando Torres celebrated his 100th Chelsea start with a brace, as the Blues secured their back-to-back European victory.

Torres could have completed his hat-trick, had his effort not denied by the cross bar. The icing on the cake was left for Belgium star Eden Hazard who scored the final goal of the match. It was also the first Champions League goal by the winger for Chelsea.
