Rejuvenated Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is a "happy" player at the moment, according to Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo.
The Spaniard has endured a difficult time at Stamford Bridge since his record £50million transfer from Liverpool and has scored just six goals this season.
But he has performed with greater conviction since Di Matteo replaced sacked Andre Villas-Boas earlier this month.
The 28-year-old bagged twice in Chelsea's recent FA Cup quarter-final win against Leicester before setting up Salomon Kalou's midweek winner against Champions League opponents Benfica with a powerful run and cross.
But Di Matteo says he has not given any special attention to Torres, commenting: "We're just happy that Fernando's performing well for us.
"He's a very good player and a great, great team player.
"I've been trying to speak to all my players and give them the confidence to play.
"Fernando seems to have been performing well. He's a happy player at the moment but all players need particular attention."
