Liverpool finally came up with a good performance after a terrible run of results which has seen them drop into the relegation zone. This win still leaves them third from bottom but there performance, and Torres finally finding his scoring boots, wll give the Reds a confidence-booster as they attempt to move back up the table.
Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson seemed extremely relieved after the game. “Fernando played well, an awful lot better,” he said. “He was very down when he came back from the World Cup; maybe people do get a bit down when they are constantly criticised left, right and centre.
“He will be very happy tonight and we will need him to score many more goals if we are really going to move into a position in the table where we think we should be.”
They still have a long way to go before they can be considered a Big Four side again, but if they carry on playing like this then they may get there in the end!
