Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez expects training to intensify from next week when his Spanish contingent return.

Fernando Torres, Pepe Reina, Xabi Alonso and Alvaro Arbeloa return to training on Friday after being granted an extra break following their Euro2008 exploits.

"All the Spanish players will be back training with us on Friday," Benitez said. "Torres will be one of them and hopefully we will see the difference in our play because of the quality these players showed last season."
