"Torres is at his prolific best, with eight league goals already," said Cole.
"Last season, it took him until February to get that many. His game isn't just about the box but he's most dangerous there because his close control allows him to take possession in confined areas. He can transfer the ball from foot to foot to create space to get in a shot.
"At times, Torres can make out he's almost uninterested, and then tunes in, just like that, and he's away with the ball.
"Some say he gets most of his goals at Anfield but the stats only support that partially; five home goals this season, three away.
"In any case, as a striker I can tell you it doesn't matter at all where you get the goals - home, away, in your back garden. That they flow is all that matters."
