Too often for Chelsea, when things have gone right for Fernando Torres, it has quickly gone pear shaped again.
Previous examples have included scoring at Old Trafford before missing a sitter against Manchester United or notching versus Swansea and then subsequently receiving a red card.
On Thursday night it was much the same again as El Nino scored with a fine finish, then got booted in the head by Steaua defender Lukasz Szukala before missing a penalty.
All in all it capped a match where it was proclaimed Fernando Torres was back, before you had sympathy for the 50 million pound man and then laughed at the Spaniard.
With Demba Ba unable to play in the Europa League, Chelsea’s progression at least means more guaranteed playing time for Fernando Torres.
Who’d be a footballer eh?!
GIFs of Torres’ goal for Chelsea is followed by a bloody El Nino and then his penalty miss.
