Steven Gerrard wasn't surprised to see Liverpool pal Fernando Torres hit his brace in Saturday's victory over Everton. "It was only a matter of time," he told liverpoolfc.tv. "You can't keep strikers with his talent down for long because they aren't going to go long without a goal. It was only a matter of time. He was a bit frustrated first-half, but then Keane's put one on a plate for him and the second one was typical Torres. "He made a lot of space for himself in the box and the finish was deadly."
