Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is playing as well as he ever has, says team-mate Petr Cech.

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 the return to Stamford Bridge of Jose Mourinho has seen the Spain international make a recent to form in recent weeks.

And Cech believes Torres is now back to his best.

"This is the debate everybody's been having for a long time," the Blues No. 1 told Chelsea TV.

"There were so many games when Fernando was absolutely brilliant, but because he didn't score everybody's saying 'Oh, he didn't score'.

"Now he's scoring goals, he's making goals, he's playing as well as he has during his life."

Torres has scored five goals so far this season in all competitions.
