Torres grateful to Liverpool teammates

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres says better supporting team-mates are the reason he's scoring more regularly in England.

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has spoken about his rich vein of goalscoring form, claiming it's purely down to the quality of service he receives.

"Strikers only really score goals because of the efforts of their teammates," he told Liverpool's official website. "So far I've been scoring pretty much a goal a game and I feel very lucky and happy with that.

"It's in a large way down to the very good team mates I have. At Liverpool we always play with a high tempo and with a good rhythm, so that helps, too."
