Two wins in a row..now that is something as Liverpool fans we have not been used to over the last couple of weeks. After we beat Wolves, I was very worried about facing Aston Villa at Villa Park. Truth be told, we did not play well against Wolves but we still got the win. Last night, we did not play particularly well and I had settled for the draw but we have that lad from sunny Spain, who got the ball and scored again!
I am reading reports this morning where Steven Gerrard is saying Torres is the best striker in the world and I can not disagree with Captain Fantastic. Torres’ goal yesterday in stoppage time was simply brilliant. Here is a guy who had not had many chances during the course of the game but one mistake by the Villa defence and we punished them to take a 1-0 win.
That is the beauty of having a player like Torres in our team. He may do nothing for 90 minutes but give him one sniff at goal and he will score. There is a lot of talk that has been going around that Torres may leave Liverpool if we do not qualify for the Champions League. I am sure Torres himself is rubbishing such speculation and I don’t think it is even going to matter as we ARE going to finish in the top 4.
All we need to do now is get on a run of winning a couple of games and we will be right up that solidifying our top 4 finish. We have Spurs as our next league game and that is going to be a big one! You can almost call it a six pointer as a win for us would close the gap between us and Spurs.
