Defender hails Fernando

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has described striker Fernando Torres as possibly 'the best in the world'.

The Spanish hitman has hardly been fit all season due to a succession of hamstring injuries and Carragher believes it is testament to the rest of the side that they are still fighting for the title with Manchester United.

Carragher told the Post: "Fernando is the best forward in the league, if not the world, so to be where we are already after playing so much of the season without him is a great credit to the lads, staff and management.

"It would be interesting to see how other teams would cope without having such an important player on the sidelines for so long.

"We finished fourth last season but we have overtaken Chelsea and Arsenal and even though it's not over yet by a long way, it looks it will be us and Manchester United for the title, and that's an achievement in itself we should be proud of.
