Liverpool star set to miss Merseyside derby

The Spanish striker is struggling with a groin injury and was expected to return this week.

Benitez said: “Torres had a plan of fitness that would take three weeks working with the physios.

“You can see he is improving all the time, but I would say that he is still maybe 10 days away from being right.

“The next few days will decide whether he will be fit for Everton, but at this moment there are no guarantees.”
