Terrific Torres mauls Tigers

Pietro Berrettini
“Liverpool striker Fernando Torres scored a brilliant hat-trick to blow away struggling Hull at Anfield. The Spain striker scored twice in the first half either side of Geovanni’s equaliser and added a third soon after the interval. Captain Steven Gerrard scored a fourth just before the hour and substitute Ryan Babel added two late goals as Liverpool made it four league wins – including 16 goals – in succession.” (ESPN)

Fernando Torres stars as Liverpool increase pressure on Hull City
“A sublime hat-trick from Fernando Torres showed why at the age of 25 he can already be considered one of the great Liverpool centre-forwards. The Spaniard snuffed out Hull’s game attempt at resistance almost single-handed and ensured that since their last visit to Anfield in December, the Yorkshire side have taken seven points from 28 games.” (Guardian)

Liverpool 6 Hull City 1: match report
“No matter how virulent the chants, how iconoclastic the protest or how furious the revolt, actions speaker louder than words. Liverpool’s fans, inspired by the sight of co-owner George Gillett entering Anfield for the first time in months, staged an ad hoc demonstration at his perceived penny-pinching, his alleged desire to make money from the club without spending anything on it.” (Telegraph)

Liverpool 6-1 Hull
“So much for struggling to beat the teams that just want a draw at Anfield. 13 goals put past Stoke, Burnley, and Hull – and Liverpool dropped points against Stoke and Hull last season. It didn’t look like it’d end 6-1 at halftime. A 12th minute goal by Torres appeared to initiate an avalanche, but defensive blunders crept back in to postpone the rout. Liverpool had started the brighter, and when Riera found #9 in the box, Torres deftly shifted onto his left past Sonko and slotted in the far corner. I think he might have found his form.” (oh you beauty)
