Manchester City climbed to fifth place in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday at the Etihad.
Torres added the finishing touch in the 55th minute after latching onto a deflected Rodrigo cross in the middle of the area. The ex-Valencia man calmly stoked home while he sent Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow the other way.
The victory gives City 26 points from 14 matches, one behind fourth-placed Manchester United. Newcastle remain in 12th with 18 points.
