Torres 4/5 to outscore Drogba
Chelsea’s record-breaking signing Fernando Torres is relishing the prospect of playing alongside Didier Drogba, who he rates as ‘the best striker in the world by far’ and Sky Bet can barely split the pair in a goalscoring match bet, offering 4/5 that Torres is more prolific in the league this season and 10/11 that Drogba scores more.
Torres scored seven times for Liverpool against Chelsea in previous encounters and Carlo Ancelotti will now be hoping he can maintain his excellent scoring record for the Blues rather than against them.
Torres is 11/8 to score against Liverpool on his Chelsea debut on Sunday and 6/1 to bag a brace.
Torres is also rated the 1/2 favourite to outscore the other record signing of the transfer window, Andy Carroll.
Carroll, who has scored 11 goals in 19 league games this season, will wear the Liverpool number nine shirt vacated by the Spaniard and is 6/4 to end the season with more goals than his predecessor.
Sky Bet’s PR Director Dale Tempest told Oddspreview: "Another amazing deadline day. History tells us there are very few good value January transfers but that hasn't stopped clubs splashing the cash.
"Torres and Carroll are big names with big reputations and now massive transfer fees to match."
