But the visitor’s have only won once away this campaign and three out of their last four games on the road had ended in defeat so it was no shock when the Seasiders quickly levelled.
Gary Taylor-Fletcher taking advantage of some woeful Reds defending to restore parity after Liverpool looked like gaining a stranglehold on the game.
Torres had a couple of good chances as the game progressed but the Tangerines are a resilient team and began to look dangerous on the break.
Their winner duly arrived as again Liverpool failed to defend correctly and this time DJ Campbell took full advantage to head home.
