Cape Town - Whilst at Liverpool, Spanish striker Fernando Torres had the footballing world at his feet but is that still the case? 

Fernando Torres was a legend at Liverpool, the fans loved him and defenders, even the very best in the world, feared him. In four seasons in Merseyside, Torres was arguably the best player not only in the Liverpool side but also in the entire English Premiership with 65 goals in 102 appearances.

In 2011, it all changed. Torres made a dramatic £50 million move to rival Chelsea.

Fernando completed the switch on the final day of the transfer window leaving Liverpool in huge trouble as they replaced Torres with Andy Carroll.

Torres has form has been awful in the blue of Chelsea. Just 20 goals in a 110 appearances for the club means that the player is no longer considered to be among the best in the league. 

Torres is fighting for his Stamford Bridge future but his latest miss may see him looking for a new club.
