Gerrard Tips Torres To Start Goalscoring Run

Steven Gerrard has backed Fernando Torres' confidence boost from his Blackburn Rovers strike to fire Liverpool up the Premier League table. Torres, 26, had gone nearly two months between finding the back of the net before he hit the winner on Sunday. This drought had coincided with a slide into the relegation zone after a disastrous start under new manager Roy Hodgson. Speaking to the club's official website, Gerrard was sure the World Cup 2010 winner could now fire his team up the standings. "It'll do wonders for Fernando's confidence," Gerrard said. "All week in training he looked dangerous and lively running in the channels, and against Blackburn he was exactly the same. "He had Blackburn tormented, he kept the ball really well, and this team is so different when Fernando is on form. "He's had a difficult summer with injuries and a difficult start to the season with a few niggles, but now he's starting to look fit and sharp and I'm sure the win and the goal will do him the world of good and hopefully he'll go from strength to strength. "If we keep him fit and he's on form, we'll move up this table really fast."
