After victory over Newcastle United on Saturday, Liverpool striker Fernando Torres says they go into their Champions League second-leg clash at Inter Milan in top shape.

He said: "Now we can look to the Inter Milan game with confidence, it is a very important game for us, and we must keep this form going.

"We are confident of progressing in the competition in the San Siro. We had an excellent victory against Inter at Anfield, and we know if we score one goal in Milan it makes it very difficult for them, already 2-0 behind.

"They are one of the best teams in Europe at the moment, but we are confident.

"We expect to play deep and try for the counter-attack, and although we know Inter are a good team the first goal is very important.

"If we score first it will be difficult for them to score four times."
