Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has urged manager Rafa Benitez to keep pairing Fernando Torres with Steven Gerrard in attack.

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has urged manager Rafa Benitez to keep pairing Fernando Torres with Steven Gerrard in attack.

Benitez has spoken about moving Gerrard back into midfield, but Carra says: "For me, there is no team in England who have a partnership like Stevie Gerrard and Fernando Torres. They have the ability to tear defences wide open in a second. When you have that kind of ability in your team it gives you incredible belief.

"If we can keep them both free of injury then we are going to take some stopping because there were times last year when we went into games without them and it showed. It was great to see Stevie and Fernando sign new contracts this summer because they are the most important players in our team."
