Torres dedicates Saturday's goals to Hillsborough victims

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres scored twice in the 4-0 hammering of Blackburn on Saturday and after admitted they were dedicated to those who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster 20 years ago. "These goals are for the 96 and their families because I know that Saturday was a special day for them with it being the home game closest to the anniversary," the Spaniard told the club's official website.

"All the goals are for the fans and the families. On Wednesday we will see all of them and we know it is an important day for them and for all Liverpool supporters.

"It makes Tuesday all the more important. We have to try to do it for the families and the 96."
