Benitez admits Liverpool need Torres to stay fit

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez admits they need Fernando Torres to stay fit for any chance of winning a trophy this season.

"We have to keep Fernando on the pitch," said Benitez, who confirmed his star striker did not have an injection to ease the pain in his fragile hamstrings for their victory at Manchester United.

"He gives us more confidence and helps us create more opportunities. It is the same with (Steven) Gerrard."
