Chelsea slumped to a 0-2 defeat at home to Swansea in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final.
Goals from Danny Graham and Michu ensured that the South-Welsh club are favourite to book their place at Wembley after two mistakes from Branislav Ivanovich. Misfiring Fernando Torres once again received criticism from fans at the ground and on the internet as the pressure on Rafa Benitez grows once again.
What did Chelsea fans think of Torres’ performance? Are they now adamant that new signing Demba Ba is the best option to have up front?
Twitter supplied these telling results:
@bluesChronicle: Torres booed off the pitch. Stamford Bridge echoes to the sound of: “F*** off Benitez, you’re not welcome here.”
Chelsea are the worst European Champions I’ve seen in my entire life
They can walk out. They can boo. For as long as Benitez and Torres are at Chelsea its business as usual and… they have their scapegoats.
Fellow Chelsea fans have lost their patience with Torres. Took long enough, needs to look like he’s trying. Can’t see him bouncing back #cfc
Is there a single solitary (real) Chelsea fan who still rates/backs Torres? I’m genuinely intrigued to know what drugs they’re on… #CFC
Tonight has made all real Chelsea fans see that Demba Ba is in the same position as Torres, except Ba does his job. Adios. #CFC

Fernando Torres has settled as a barman. He is good at putting shots over the bar. #Chelsea #Swansea
Is Torres’ time up at Chelsea? What do you think?
