Chelsea fans react on Twitter to Torres performance: 'We have no cutting edge when he's up front'

Fernando Torres

Chelsea suffered a huge blow when they lost 1-0 to Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon, but what did the fans make of Fernando Torres' performance?

Fernando Torres - what more is there to say?

Well, Chelsea fans have found more, after the Spanish striker failed to fire the Blues to a much-needed victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.  

Jose Mourinho has spent weeks telling anyone who would listen that his side is not ready to win the Premier League, and what everyone chalked down as mind-games may in fact have been an assertion of the truth.  It certainly seems that way after Chelsea fell to a potentially title-defining loss away to relegation-threatened Palace.

Take nothing at all away from the Eagles.  They fully deserved their win.  But what now for the Blues?

Torres could easily have saved a point for his side, but he missed that opportunity, and while he had six scoring attempts during the game he failed to find the target with any of them. He also failed to play a single key pass during the entire match.
