Frank Lampard spoke after the West Ham game of Fernando Torres and his first goal for Chelsea and believes it will be the start of something special at Chelsea. After coming to Chelsea himself for big money back then, he understands the pressure Torres had been under but has been impressed with Torres' attitude while searching for his first goal.

He said:
"I was a young kid and a midfielder and I came here for a lesser fee, When you’re a world-class striker and you come here for £50m, the spotlight is really on. I had a bit of leeway and a bit of time to settle but Fernando has not been given that. And that’s fair enough.

As a striker, he will be judged on his goals. I’ve gone through patches where I can’t score. Nobody’s made of stone and it affects you. It certainly affects me when I go a few games without a goal.

You start to think about chances and going for goal, rather than doing what’s instinctive. I don’t know if that’s been the case with him. I’ve seen him have a lot of misfortune in games. He’s been given offside and keepers have made brilliant saves. Even here he was almost tackled by a puddle. But he's not opened his mouth and said anything when he's been on the bench. He's come on and given everything. Now you're going to see him fly, whether that's in the remaining games of this season or next.

But it’s great for him and for us as a team that he has managed to put it to bed. He’s got his goal and we can finally stop talking about it. He’s got off the mark. That goal was a trademark one for him, pace and power. I’m sure he’ll look back at it fondly in a couple of years because he is going to be very prolific for us."

The sense of relief first of all then celebration when he scored was amazing. The roof nearly came off the Bridge and I was so pleased to see the reaction of the players. All this rubbish that had been written about certain players not being happy with Torres being at the club was put to bed right in that moment.

I am certain Fernando Torres will now score goals freely and really enjoy his football at Chelsea. You never know, he could play a very important part in the next four games in addition to our future.

We all thought it when he signed and there is no change in my opinion now:
He's a fantastic signing for Chelsea and will take us to the next level!
