Kuyt hails Liverpool pal Torres as "real quality"

Dirk Kuyt is backing Liverpool teammate Fernando Torres to settle quickly in the Premiership about his performance in Saturday's defeat of Aston Villa.

Kuyt said: "I thought that Fernando played well. We had some good chances and we looked good together.

"The first goal was an own goal but the team work between the two of us leading up to it was really good.

"Now we will just try to work on things and keep going in the right direction.

"It's his first time in the Premier League but I don't think he will need too long a time to adjust. Every player needs a few games when they come in but he has shown already some quality.

"With a bit of luck he could have scored his first goal for Liverpool. He is real quality."
