Liverpool's Fernando Torres has dedicated his first ever FA Cup goal, scored in the 2-0 win at Preston, to Steven Gerrard. The Spanish striker made his long-awaited comeback following hamstring problems as a second half substitute.

"I was pleased to score for the team and for the fans because it guaranteed the result and took us into the next round," said Torres.

"I might have scored the goal but it was created by Stevie and I would like to dedicate my goal to him."
