Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez praised Fernando Torres and the rest of the team after they got points on the board for the first time in three matches.

Torres, a £20million summer signing from Atletico Madrid, took his tally for the season to 14 goals after a brace in the 4-1 victory against Portsmouth at Anfield.

Benitez said: "It was a great performance from the team, especially in the first half. We looked good and created a lot of chances. But then we got a little bit nervous against a team with a very good away record. Torres though is always a threat. Not only that he makes room for our other players."
