Rafael Benitez has stated his confidence in Spanish striker Fernando Torres ahead of the title run-in.

The former Atletico Madrid star scored twice to all but end Chelsea’s title challenge and reinvigorate Liverpool’s in the 2-0 success yesterday.

“Fernando has not had the match fitness he needs. Of course he can score goals, but he needed to be up to the right fitness level to do it. Now he has almost got there and you can see what he can do.” Benitez said.

“But you can see the quality he has to score very important goals, and that will be really important for us now as the season comes to a conclusion.”

“He is coming back to his best in every single game, you can see that quality returning for him all the time little by little.”

“It was important for the team and also for him to see Fernando score.”

“It’s very important for the rest of the season and to see Fernando back with two goals.”

Torres has scored seven goals in thirteen league outings this season and is looking to continue this scoring form to help Liverpool to a maiden Premier League crown.

Torres said: “The two goals against Chelsea were very important for me because they were my first goals after the injuries and we will all have more confidence after this.”

“It is fantastic for me to score at home, and against Chelsea. It has been very frustrating not to be able to play. I am very happy, but more for the result.”
