"I knew before the game about the chance to equal Roger Hunt's record and I am very proud to go down in this great club's history," Torres said.

"It is hard in your first season but it has been made easier bởi the support I get and bởi the team-mates around me."

The goal was the decisive one in the1-0 win over Man City but the trang chủ side were completely dominant and could have scored a hatful as City seemed lethargic and unimaginitive. Gerrard, Kuyt and Babel were all inches away from extending the lead.

Peter Crouch and John Arnie Riise were not even in the squad, which just increased the speculation that they will not be staying at Anfield tiếp theo season.
