Carlo Ancelotti feels that Fernando Torres will score for Chelsea before the end of the season.

Torres has now gone 871 minutes without finding the net for club and country and bookmakers have begun taking bets on whether he will break his duck before the campaign is over. But Ancelotti has no doubt the Spain striker will begin repaying his £50m transfer fee in Chelsea’s last six games.

“He will score,” said the manager, who refused to confirm whether the 27-year-old would start Wednesday night’s Premier League match against Birmingham after being restricted to an eight-minute cameo at West Bromwich on Saturday.

“He can score if he plays. It’s very difficult to change the team that played so well against West Brom, not just for the result, not just for the performance. They did very well against West Bromwich.”

Ancelotti revealed he and his coaching staff are not employing any special methods to get Torres scoring. “We are working with him like we are with the other strikers,” he said. “He has exercises to score – shooting, crossing – but nothing different from the others.

“I think he wants to score and he’s not happy for this reason. I would like to see my players every time happy and with confidence. It’s not a good moment for Fernando, but I want to do my best to support him.”
