Merson wrote in the Daily Star: "He was great against Tottenham. It was like the old Torres again, turning, running at people. The player you would pay to watch. He looked so lively and it was great to see.
"But I think it's too soon to say the old Torres is on his way back. He was great against Spurs, but he only ever seems to be very good - or very bad.
"I hope this is the old Torres coming back because he used to be a phenomenal player. But he could come back from his injury and not get a kick, and it wouldn't surprise me."
