Late Fernando Torres goal downs Manchester City

Fernando Torres capitalised on a mix-up between Matija Nastasic and Joe Hart in the 90th minute to win this afternoon’s Premier League match for Chelsea.

Gary Cahill fired an early volley over the crossbar after beating the offside trap as Chelsea began on the front foot.

Fernando Torres had a similar chance just before the half-hour mark when Ramires picked him out. The Spaniard took a touch and just had to beat Joe Hart but somehow swiped over.

The number nine atoned for the miss moments later by beating Gael Clichy for pace down the right and fizzing over a cross that Andre Schurrle tapped home for his first goal in Chelsea blue.

Torres was the centre of attention in the first half and he almost doubled the hosts’ lead with a shot out-of-nothing from a tight angle that flew past Joe Hart before cannoning back off the underside of the crossbar.

Aguero had City’s best chance of the first half as he worked a yard of space in the area before lashing at goal from an angle, with Petr Cech beating it out.

City were level three minutes after the interval when Samir Nasri fed Aguero, who was running away from goal but still found the roof of the net with a left-foot strike that whizzed past Petr Cech.
