Torres on Owen and Mascherano

Liverpool ace Fernando Torres insists Newcastle United striker Michael Owen can still compete in the Premiership.

Fernando Torres is hopeful that Javier Mascherano won't quit Liverpool for Barcelona.

He told the Daily Mail: "I know that he is a big part of the history of this football club and that the fans at Anfield loved him. I have no idea where he will be playing next season, but I am convinced that he still has a lot to offer.

"He has been unlucky with injuries in recent years and I know how frustrating that can be, but he has a natural instinct in front of goal and you don't lose that just because you have been injured."

He told the Daily Mail: "Javier loves it at Liverpool - that is all I can tell you. In the summer people like to make a lot of noises about world-class players - and Javier is a worldclass player.

"He has said himself that he is very happy at Anfield and there is no reason for him to want to leave."
