Fernando Torres says Chelsea have passed their first big test of the season as they came away from Arsenal with a 2-1 victory.

Torres opened the scoring for the Blues and, while Gervinho levelled for the Gunners, Juan Mata restored the visitors' lead with a free-kick that found its way through the Arsenal backline.

"We knew before the game it would be an important result," Torres told Sky Sports. "It was one of the main targets we have this season - winning these kind of games. We want to be in the top four for sure and fighting for the title.

"Today was the first big test. It's a very difficult stadium against a great team. It's very good for us."

Roberto Di Matteo fielded Mata, Eden Hazard and Oscar at Emirates Stadium and Torres said he is enjoying the new era at Chelsea.

"I enjoy more this season," he said. "The kind of players I have behind me has given me a lot of support. I have to improve to create more and more chances for the team.

"I'm scoring more. The team still have a big way to improve. Not just me - everyone. I think we're showing as a team with this different style of football this season we're in the top. We can dream with a very good system again."
