The Spaniard has left fans wondering why he can't produce the same form in matches.
The Spaniard, signed from Liverpool for £50 million in 2011, has endured a tumultuous time since moving to Stamford Bridge, with his lack/loss of form in a blue shirt well documented.
But, ahead of Chelsea's friendly with Ferencvaros, the 30-year-old has served up a timely reminder that he is still capable of beating his man and finding the net with pinpoint precision.
The Spaniard now just needs to produce that on a more regular basis and - most importantly - in matches.
Diego Costa led the way for Jose Mourinho's side in a friendly against Fenerbahce yesterday, dribbling skilfully to give the Blues the lead.
Perhaps Torres can do the same against Hungarian opposition on Sunday, before Chelsea host Real Sociedad on Tuesday and then travel to Burnley for their Premier League opener next weekend.
If his finish in training is anything to go by, there could yet be life in the Spaniard's Stamford Bridge career.
