We have finally found the way to get the most out of Fernando Torres, get the opposition to kick him in the head.
Having been anonymous in the first half, he went down under a challenge in the penalty area and with his appeal rejected was kicked in the head whilst lying on the floor.
After lying on the floor for ages, he finally went off to stem the bleeding from the damage caused in the incident and came back on to change the game.
Blood soaked and angry he suddenly found a yard of pace, determination and his scoring touch to win the tie in another labouring Chelsea performance.
The goal may have come before the blow to the head, but it fired him up he was everywhere and his all round play was excellent compared to abject earlier.
Ok so he missed his penalty but he was the game changer providing an outlet and a thrust in the final third that was the impetus for a 3-1 victory that was enough to secure a place in the next round.
A moment that typified this was when he beat three players near the by-line cut inside and played a ball that Benayoun should have converted.
All we need to do now is find a way to rile him up this way for every game he plays between now and the end of the season.
