Torres scored the only goal of the game against Aston Villa last night.
Gerrard declared: “Everyone knows that when Fernando is on form he is the best in the world, the best bar none.
“He can score goals like this one, goals out of nothing even after he has experienced a quiet game. That’s what makes him so special. This is a massive result for us, a huge win. It could spark the run that drives us into the top four.”
