Hazard defends ´top-class´ Torres

8 April 2013 15:00

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has defended Fernando Torres and believes the Spaniard has received more criticism than he deserves.

Torres is the Blues' top scorer with 19 goals in all competitions in 2012-13 but has only found the target seven times in the Premier League.

His form has frequently come under scrutiny since his 50-million-pound move to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool but Hazard believes Chelsea have two 'top-class' strikers in Torres and Demba Ba.

Ba has bagged 15 goals in the Premier League so far this campaign but only two have come for his new club since his January move from Newcastle.

"(Torres) must be one of the most criticised football players in the world, yet he keeps the good work going," Hazard said. "I'm impressed.

"People expect 10 goals from him every game. We are lucky to have two top-class forwards with him and Demba Ba. We must make the most of them."
