Liverpool are sweating on an injury report for star striker Fernando Torres.

Torres lasted just 23 minutes of Spain's 1-0 friendly victory over France before being forced off with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.

Although the 23-year-old went off in some discomfort it was not immediately obvious when Torres sustained the problem.

Liverpool, who are away to Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend, will be keeping their fingers crossed that the injury to Torres - their top scorer with 18 goals in all competitions - is not serious.
