Jose Mourinho believes striker Fernando Torres is starting to enjoy his football again after scoring in Chelsea's last two Premier League games.

Torres has come in for a ton of criticism since joining Chelsea from Liverpool at the start of 2011 for a club record £50million, but has found himself in favour with Mourinho this season.

The Spain international scored in Chelsea's 2-0 win at Hull at the weekend, and Mourinho said of him: "Fernando scored against Southampton, now he has scored again. He is enjoying his football more than the last couple of years.

"The goals are coming and he is doing what we want him to do - press defenders, hold the ball, wait for support, get behind defenders and he scored.

"It is important for him but more important for us."

Mourinho has also praised Chelsea fans for keeping faith with the club's record signing.

"Chelsea fans are like this," he added.

"I remember in 2004 when we had Mateja Kezman and he scored his first (league) goal in December, but every time playing at Stamford Bridge people were supporting him.

"It helps players, especially in a difficult moment. Players do not feel the heat when things are not going well for them."
