Torres in confident mood

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres, who scored a hat-trick against QPR in his team's 6-1 win over QPR, admits "things are getting better" for him and believes his four goals in two games are reward for hard work.

Torres admits his first year at Chelsea has been a difficult one and predicts the next seven days, which includes a Premier League tie against Newcastle and an FA Cup final against his former club Liverpool, "could be a great week".
