Torres Focussing On League

The Spanish striker enjoyed a good start to his second season in English football with the only goal in yesterday’s 1-0 win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
Having finished last season in fourth place, despite Torres’ 24 league goals for the club, Liverpool are eager to maintain a serious title challenge this season and end their long wait for the league title.
Speaking to Setanta Sports, Torres said: “Our focus is on The Premier League and we know how important it is to win The Premier League for the fans.”
Despite the victory yesterday, Liverpool’s performance was far from convincing yet Torres appeared unconcerned and was simply pleased to have collected all three points on the opening day. The striker admitted: “It has been too many years and we are focusing on that. It was important to start with a win after the not so very good game in the Champions League.”
Yesterday’s game also saw a league debut for Liverpool of their new £20 million signing from Tottenham Hotspur, Robbie Keane. Although Keane had a quiet game and was substituted in the second half, Torres revealed he is looking forward to playing with the new man. He declared: “I always want to play with a good player like Robbie and he is fine for me and the team, which is more important.”
Liverpool’s next challenge is the visit of Middlesbrough who head to Anfield next weekend after enjoying a bright start to their campaign with a 2-1 win over Juande Ramos’ highly regarded Spurs side.
