Fernando Torres is enjoying his developing partnership with Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.

Gerrard and Torres have now scored 44 goals between them this season and a remarkable nine in their last five games together.

The Spaniard said: "When you play alongside a player like Stevie, and with Ryan (Babel) and Jermaine (Pennant) on the wings, it is easy to score like I have been. They are brilliant and make my job easy.

"I am very comfortable with the partnership I have with Stevie and he is comfortable with me. We now must play like this for a long time together.

"We know where each other is running, where we are. I score, Stevie scores, and the team is winning. That is the most important thing.

"We both do our jobs and the team is winning. That is all we are trying to do."
