Liverpool boss Benitez refuses to enter Vidic debate over Torres rivalry

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has played down the importance of Fernando Torres' showdown with Nemanja Vidic at Manchester United tomorrow.

Torres has scored in his last two meetings with United and Benitez was questioned by reporters about whether he has a psychological edge over defender Vidic.

"Vidic is a good player with experience so it will be tough for Torres to beat him but hopefully he can do it," Benitez said.

"The main thing is the team is doing well and if we work like we did against Portsmouth and Lille then we can win against anyone."
