"Blackburn were very good defensively, we had to be patient but eventually the opening came."
Gerrard and Torres have now scored more than 50 goals between them this season, and the skipper paid tribute to the Spaniard's impact since his move from Atletico Madrid last summer.
"He's a good player, he makes good runs and he's a pleasure to play with," Gerrard added. "To get 30 goals in his first season is unbelievable and I'm sure he's got a few left."
"It was important to make it five points," Gerrard said. "It's going to be a good chase but we're confident we can achieve fourth place."
"We're Liverpool Football Club, we're better than that," he said. "But we (the players) have got more important things to worry about."
