Late call on Torres

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez will make a late decision on the fitness of Fernando Torres ahead of Tuesday's Champions League Group D clash with Atletico Madrid at Anfield.

Torres was put through a tough training session on Monday, having missed five games with a hamstring injury, and was described by Benitez as having a "70% chance" of facing his former club.

Benitez has no other major injury problems - other than long-term absentee Martin Skrtel - so he will not take a risk with the Spain international, who could be included initially on the bench.
