Steven Gerrard insists he backs Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez's rotation policy.

Gerrard admitted before victory over Wigan that he believed Fernando Torres should be starting after his hat-trick in midweek.

"There are so many games," said Gerrard. "There are 60-65 games we hope.

"So it is impossible to ask the players to play in every game. We have got to trust Rafa."
