Johnson defends underfire Liverpool pal Torres

Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson has rubbished claims Fernando Torres cannot recapture his best form.

Torres has come in for criticism from certain sources this season but Johnson believes it is only a matter of time before he is striking fear into every defence in the country once again.

"We are very confident, and Fernando is too, that he will be back to his best very soon and hopefully we can give him a few chances on Saturday," Johnson told Liverpoolfc.tv.

"Everyone knows what Fernando can do and we always have great confidence in him to score goals for us.

"Fernando is rarely quiet during a game but if he is he won't be for long. Look at last Sunday - he won us the penalty and then the free-kick."
