Kuyt feels the criticism of Torres has been over the top and is confident he will soon start hitting the back of the net.
“If you are Fernando - one of the world’s best strikers - everyone is watching you,” he said.
“If people get a moment to blame him for something, they will take their chance. But we all know next week he can score a hat-trick and everything can change. I’m sure his goals will come.
“If Fernando scores a hat-trick, I’m in a better mood because we will have won. We all want to challenge for things and I’m sure we will if we keep working hard.”
