Carra: Liverpool Need New Star Man

Jamie Carragher insists Liverpool are not over-reliant on Fernando Torres but conceded they may need a major new signing to ignite Roy Hodgson's faltering era. Torres again failed to score in the goalless Europa League draw against FC Utrecht - a result that raised further questions about Hodgson's reign. But Carragher stood by Torres and their new manager ahead of Sunday's visit of Blackpool.
Jamie Carragher remains committed to the Roy Hodgson project ''If you give Fernando chances, he will score'' said Carragher. ''I don't think it's anything to do with Fernando, just that we are not creating enough for him. History shows if you do give him the service, you've got a 25 to 30- goal striker. There is nothing to worry about.'' He added: ''We are only seven or eight games into the new set-up and I have been here before with new managers. People have short memories. They forget that when Rafa Benitez and Gerard Houllier came, their first seasons were difficult. ''Roy should be given the same time they had. Every manager has his own ideas and we have to get used to them. ''The main thing is probably signing as good a player as possible. That could make the real difference.''
