Despite scoring twice in Chelsea's 6-1 rout of Nordsjaelland recently, Torres has hardly been the leading front-man the Blues need. His failure to hit the back of net has cost Chelsea a place in the knockout stages of the Champions League, in addition to Rafa Benitez's squad finding themselves 10-points off the top of the Premier League.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Torres insisted he remained happy to shoulder the goal-scoring burden for the Blues, but he believed the team's attackers needed more time to adapt to each other.
"I'm very happy [being the main striker] because it's what I have been doing in the past and the role I like to get. Hopefully it can be like this until the end of the season," Torres stated.
"We still have to improve other things as a team but I think we have the players. We need more time."
Citing newer team-mates Oscar and Eden Hazard as examples, the Spaniard revealed that he was still learning how best to support the duo in the Blues' attacks.
"We have been very good defensively this season. But in the middle we have huge quality and those kinds of players have to be the key for us because we need to play for them and the strikers need to understand what they like to do to score more goals," Torres explained.
"It's just a matter of time and training and being sure that we understand each other. With [Juan] Mata I have been playing for many years in the national team and last season at Chelsea. But Oscar and Eden [Hazard] have just arrived and we need to train more to improve."
Chelsea travel to the Stadium of Light to play Sunderland on Saturday.
