Torres to miss Madrid and Chelsea

Fernando Torres looks set to be missing for two weeks for Liverpool after scans confirmed the player had suffered a hamstring injury in Spain’s victory over Belgium on Wednesday.

Torres will miss what would have been an emotional return back to Atletico, the club he used to Captain, but more worrying for Liverpool is that player will not only miss that crunch game but also the Premiership game away at Stamford Bridge.

Benitez was quick to point out that this matter isn’t closed and he will want answers from the Spanish national coach over Torres injuries.

“With us, Fernando has had one hamstring injury in 18 months. We need to check why there is a difference with Spain.

“For me the reason is too many games. He played two games in five days, one of them against a country who are not of the top standard. It can be avoided, maybe a better selection.

“Fernando wanted to play next week in Madrid, which will now not happen. His injury is probably the worst he could have had. It is a very bad situation for us, and it is not the first time it has happened.”

Torres will be targeting the midweek clash at Anfield against Portsmouth, on the 29th October, for his return to action.

  1. Sure we are all sorry for that, and i guess there is nothing stopping us beatin atletico Madrid and Chelsea with our army behind the Boss. Good luck to the reds next matches.

  2. we’ll miss him but i belive we can win without him,any possibility of him playing will be welcomed.More greese 2 your elbow PENNAT u really made me proud

  3. I’m absolutely gutted for Torres. I hope he gets over his injury soon & comes back with a bang! Kuyt has been doing great but it’s time for Keane to step up to the plate…it’s now or never Robbie!!!

  4. im not sayin we need 2 be worried wen we have robbie Keane and Dirk Kuyt to put the goals in so get well soon fernnado but if we can beat man utd without fernando and steven there is nothing stopping us beatin wigan atletico madrid and chelsea

  5. The team will miss him. Although we have won against United without him, but the truth is this time it is the away game to chelsea. I hate to admit it, but Chelsea is in top form although missing several key players. Against United is a different story, It was at Anfield but the chelsea game will be played at the bridge. They are already breaking the records of not being beaten at home in the league…. What are we afraid of? For me, I’m afraid players may loose their head after the chelsea game and results may tend to tumble down after a great start to a season. Hopefully, we can also win at the bridge and set the warning to other clubs, we are in for the premiership title.

  6. Not saying I’m happy about it and of course I would rather him be playing, but we beat the mancs without him so no point sitting in the doldrums about it.
