Torres is now out for three weeks with a hamstring injury, but goalkeeper Pepe Reina says: "He is absolutely brilliant, a world class player for us. He just needs to get the ball and put it in the net.
"Fernando has already been through a bad injury and is still recovering so we need to give him a bit of time and his best will come again."
Denmark defender Daniel Agger agreed, saying he has not seen anything to suggest Torres is a different player from last season.
"It is just a matter of time. He will score soon but as long as he works for the team that is also good," he said.
