Dirk Kuyt is full of praise for Liverpool's hat-trick hero Fernando Torres.

After victory over Middlesbrough, Kuyt told liverpoolfc.tv: "It's great to have a player like Fernando up front - he is unbelievable.

"I think he played really well against Inter in the week but he was even better against 'Boro.

"It's his second hat-trick this season so it's really good for him and us."
