After the 3-2 Community Shield loss to Manchester City, Chelsea have two Premier League games within the next week.
The European Champions are due to take on Atletico de Madrid at Monaco's Stade Louis II, but Roberto Di Matteo's men have plenty of work to do before the match on August 31st.
First up is Wigan on the 19th, followed by Reading on the 22nd. Although the club also face Newcastle before heading to the Super Cup match, immediate attention will be on the first two fixtures.
As we saw in the Community Shield, much of the onus will be on Fernando Torres to perform.
He didn't see much of the ball in last weekend's match, but still managed to grab a goal with expert movement and a cheeky finish.
If Torres can score in the games against Wigan and Reading, his confidence will continue to grow.
Eden Hazard has already shown he will need time to adjust, so Torres' role is more important than ever. The Spaniard's opening performances will set the tone for the rest of his and Chelsea's season, so an early goal or two is important moving forward.
