Torres stays behind as Liverpool head for Debrecen

Liverpool, as expected, have left Fernando Torres out of their squad for the Champions League clash with Debrecen. Torres, who is still struggling with his niggling groin problem, has been left behind on Merseyside to continue receiving treatment on the injury.

The Spanish striker is also facing a race against time to be fit for Sunday's Merseyside showdown with Everton.

"We thought it would be two or three weeks and he's only 12 or 13 days into that so there's no point in him going," said Benitez.

"The next few days will decide if he is fit for Everton (on Sunday), but at this moment there are no guarantees."
