We'll address the elephant in the room first, shall we?
One of the reasons for optimism regarding the Rafa Benitez appointment was that he may just coax Fernando Torres back to form.
He grabbed a goal against Nordsjaelland and was awarded one by FIFA against Monterrey (despite it going yards wide but for the defender's contact), showing in spates that he threatens to return to form.
But every other week he puts in a woeful performance to remind us all that he's been nothing but a constant disappointment for Chelsea, who really need to look elsewhere come January.
He missed an absolute sitter in the dying moments, had a goal ruled out for ridiculously poor positional play (offside) and generally took way too many touches when it wasn't necessary.
Forget form, forget methods, forget confidence. Is he any good?
