During his time at Liverpool, Fernando Torres was one of the most feared strikers in not only the Premier League, but in Europe as well.

The former Spain international was Chelsea’s record signing since 2011, before current Spain international Alvaro Morata became Chelsea record signing this summer.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has hailed Morata’s impact at Stamford Bridge and said the Spaniard reminds him of Fernando Torres.

Morata was in blistering form against Stoke City on Saturday and Carragher was in awe of his performance and likened him to his former teammate Torres.

“Watching that, it reminded me of Torres, they’re a similar type of build and they both burst past people,’ the former England defender said.

“He could have scored a 25-yarder, but when I see a finish like that I automatically think that’s top class, very few players can produce that skill.

“That is better than scoring a worldie or an overhead kick – that’s top class.”
