Liverpool striker Torres struggling to make derby at Everton

Liverpool ace Fernando Torres is struggling to make next week's Merseyside derby at Everton.

Reds boss Rafa Benitez has admitted that Torres will miss the Champions League trip to Debrecen on Tuesday night and that the clash with rivals Everton at Goodison Park next Sunday may also be a game too soon.

Benitez said: "Torres had a plan of fitness that would take three weeks working with the physios.

"You can see he is improving all the time, but I would say that he is still maybe 10 days away from being right.

"The next few days will decide whether he will be fit for Everton, but at this moment there are no guarantees."
