Torres has the final word for Blues

CARDIFF CITY 1

(Bellamy 15)

CHELSEA 2

(Schurrle 72, Torres 75)

Fernando Torres netted his first English Premier League goal since January as Chelsea finished the campaign with a victory at already-relegated Cardiff, despite an abject showing. Chelsea scored twice in four second-half minutes following Craig Bellamy’s opener.

Substitute Andre Schurrle equalised before Torres — in possibly his farewell match, with the Blues rumoured to be prepared to cut their losses on the £50 million striker this summer — added a second for his first goal in 12 League games.

Ashley Cole captained Chelsea on what could be his final appearance in the absence of John Terry (knock) and Frank Lampard (illness), both of whom are reportedly pondering contract extensions on reduced terms offered by Jose Mourinho.
