Xabi: Liverpool atmosphere ideal for Torres

Xabi Alonso says Liverpool is the ideal club for fellow Spaniard Fernando Torres.

"Fernando has improved," Alonso said. "He has got rid of the pressure he had at Atletico Madrid.

"He is feeling really comfortable playing with his team-mates at Liverpool and because of this he is getting better and better each day, which is good news for the team.

"He has settled into the Premier League very quickly and that is encouraging because it can be difficult coming into a new league.

"He has shown he is not afraid of the physical contact here, with defenders trying to put him off, and that is really important."
