Torres has threatened defenders

Curtis Davies admits Aston Villa will have to be at their defensive best if they are to cope with the threat of an in-form Fernando Torres.

El Nino got off the mark for the season with a goal in the Reds' 4-0 demolition of Stoke City on Wednesday and Davies reckons it will be almost impossible to the thwart the Spaniard if he's in the mood when the Villans visit Anfield on Monday night.

"You can't have special plans for a player like Torres because he's one of the best strikers in the world," said Davies.

"If you make a plan for him he'll do something different. He's that good a player. Last year we didn't do well against Liverpool - but at least he was quiet - and the year before we did well when we drew 2-2.

"We play against top players every week but they don't get any bigger than Torres.

"We'll have to be on our game and hopefully it'll be more like the scoreline of two years ago than of last season."
