Bent backs Chelsea striker Torres as best in Premier League

Aston Villa and England striker Darren Bent has said that he believes Fernando Torres to still be the “best striker in the Premier League when fit”.

After making the £50m switch from Liverpool in January, Torres has lived up to neither the expectations nor the fee, having netted just three league goals in the time he’s been at Stamford Bridge.

Even so, Bent still backs the Spaniard as the Premier League’s number one striker, telling ESPN. “Torres is the best striker in the Premier League when fit, he’s that good. I’ve followed him right from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea.”

Ahead of the pair’s meeting at Wembley on Saturday where England meet Spain, Bent added: “He’s quick, powerful, has a good touch, can shoot with either foot and use his head.”
