Arsenal's Benayoun: Van Persie and Chelsea striker Torres very similar

Arsenal midfielder Yossi Benayoun sees great similarities between Robin van Persie and Chelsea striker Fernando Torres.

Benayoun is on-loan at Arsenal from Chelsea.

"I've been lucky to play with some of the biggest strikers and Robin at the moment is one of the best in the world," said Benayoun.

"When Fernando was on fire at Liverpool and scoring a lot of goals, for me they are on the same level.

"With Fernando you knew every game for Liverpool he could score, especially with a player like Steven (Gerrard) behind him.

"With Robin we know we must give him the right balls and he will score, and that's what he's done all season."
