Gerrard better than Villa for Torres

Published Add your comment

Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard are set to take the Premier League by storm this season, according to Spanish international Andres Iniesta.

The Liverpool pair kick-off the Premier League campaign against Arsenal tomorrow, with Torres facing a fitness race to feature in the clash against the Gunners.

'El Nino' struggled for fitness throughout the World Cup, producing in-different performances for the winners in South Africa.

His record for the Reds has made him an instant Anfield hero, and Torres revealed to his international team-mate that Gerrard is the best strike-partner he's ever played with despite playing alongside David Villa for his country.

"Nando will tell you himself that his best-ever strike partner is Steven ­Gerrard," Iniesta told the Daily Star.

“In his words they had a telepathic ­understanding when it came to making runs and the right pass. I really do think they can be one of the most successful attacking teams in the Premier League and will score goals for fun."

The Barcelona midfielder also spoke of the love Torres has for Merseyside and his desire to improve on the performances of last season under new bosss Roy Hodgson.

“Even though he is happy at Liverpool in the sense he loves the club, he is clearly not happy with the ­results on the pitch," Iniesta continued.

“I hope the new Liverpool coach has the sense to play them as a strike ­partnership again. If he does it could be a really ­successful season for them.”
