David Luiz is confident Fernando Torres will reap the rewards of his hard work and score 'loads of goals' as soon as he breaks his duck.
The £50million Chelsea striker has been overshadowed by fellow winter recruit Luiz since both players arrived at Stamford Bridge on deadline day in January.
While defender Luiz has slotted in well at the back and even managed to find the net twice, Torres is yet to get off the mark.
Brazilian centre-half Luiz understands how frustrated his Blues team-mate must be but has been impressed by his attitude in training.
And Luiz believes that Torres is such a class act that once his first goal goes in, the floodgates will open.
"It's not just because he's Fernando Torres but, for any forward, it's really hard when they don't score," Luiz said in the Daily Express.
"We all see Fernando working hard, day by day, a really professional guy, such a kind man and a great personality.
"I am sure that, as soon as the first goal comes, he will score loads of them because Fernando is a very special player."
