Torres Faces Race To Get Fit Before Derby Clash

Fernando Torres faces a race against time to be fit for next Sunday's clash with Everton. Liverpool could travel to Goodison Park for the 214th Merseyside derby without the striker after limping off just ten minutes of last weekend's defeat to Blackpool with an adductor strain. Torres has subsequently been withdrawn from Spain's squad for their upcoming Euro 2012 qualifiers with Scotland and Lithuania, and now faces a battle to regain fitness ahead of the showdown with the Reds' fierce local rivals. Dr Peter Brukner, Liverpool's Head of Sports Medicine and Sports Science, said: "Fernando was assessed earlier today at Melwood and underwent a scan this afternoon. "He will have intensive treatment over the next couple of weeks but it is too early to say if he will be fit for the game against Everton."
