Mascherano confident Torres will shine

Torres has been out of action for the Reds’ last six games.

“We know we’ve won important games with Torres. Obviously, he’s a key player for us and it’s much better to have him there,” said the Argentine midfielder.

“Of course we have others who can score, like Robbie Keane, Steven Gerrard and sometimes players like Albert Riera.

“But obviously Fernando is the main one for us and I have no worries because in the next game we could end up scoring plenty of goals.”
