Liverpool boss Benitez: Torres wouldn't have made difference

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has dismissed claims they would have beaten Champions League rivals Atletico Madrid if Fernando Torres had been fit.

Robbie Keane popped up to score in the 1-1 draw and Benitez said afterwards: "No, I think it wasn't the case.

"Obviously he's a special player and it could have been a different match. But he was unavailable so it doesn't matter."
