Liverpool ace Fernando Torres paid tribute to Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas after their 4-0 thrashing.

Torres told "They have a fantastic 'keeper - one of the best in the world. Every time I play against him he is brilliant. The best Real Madrid player on the night was Casillas."

Liverpool now travel to Manchester United on Saturday before discovering their Champions League quarter-final fate next Friday.

"We have to wait for the draw, but we have confidence now for the Champions League, and also for Saturday against United," added Torres.

"That is a massive game. I hope to win that and have more chances in the league. We know it's very important to win there - if not they will be many points ahead."

On his own fitness, the number nine said: "I feel good. My ankle felt a little bit painful in the second half but that doesn't matter in a match like this. We will work hard from Wednesday morning and I think I will be 100 per cent for Saturday."
