Liverpool forget their troubles with super Spaniard

Published Add your comment

Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt admits seeing striker Fernando Torres scoring goals from every angle has helped the squad forget what a disappointing season they are having.

The Spain international has hit seven in his last four matches and, even though that run includes a defeat to Manchester United, Kuyt believes the squad are now looking forward with confidence rather than dwelling on previous mistakes and missed opportunities.

And Liverpool's bid for Champions League qualification remains on track after Sunday's 3-0 win over Sunderland, and Kuyt said: "Not only against Sunderland but since he has been back from his injury he has done a great job for the team.

"He has scored some great goals and has played really well. It makes things a lot easier for the team."

He added: "Every player in this team has bad moments but we are all trying to leave this behind us.

"We need to keep going. We have struggled a bit during the season but we don't have time to worry about these things as we have to look forward.

"With Fernando in this form, and also with the team playing a lot better, hopefully we have a chance.

"It is hard to say why we played so well against Sunderland.

"One of the things is that everyone in the team is more or less fit, especially Fernando and Stevie Gerrard and that makes a lot of difference.

"They are coming back and scoring important goals for you so the team plays better as well."

The comprehensive win over the Black Cats, in which Torres scored twice, lifted Liverpool to within four points of fourth-placed Tottenham.
