Liverpool defender Carragher: Right decision to sub Torres

Jamie Carragher says subbing Fernando Torres against Fulham was the right decision made by Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez.

Fulham overran Liverpool after the Spaniard left the field, but Carragher insists: "Fernando has had a lot of problems lately and the longer he stays on the pitch, the more chance he has got of sustaining an injury.

"We know Fernando is not quite 100 per cent. If Fernando had got injured at the end, we would have had virtually nobody for the game in midweek but we still brought a Dutch international in Ryan Babel on. It should be enough quality."
