Jamie Carragher has hailed the partnership formed between Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard and striker Fernando Torres, hailing them as ‘œthe most important players in the team’.
With just two weeks until the new season, Carragher says he believes Gerrard and Torres’ attacking partnership will be the catalyst to achieving the title dream.
Speaking ahead of tonight’s pre-season friendly against Espanyol in Barcelona, Carragher said, “No other team in England has a partnership like Gerrard and Torres,” enthused Carragher.
“It’s strange to be talking about Stevie as a striker now but that’s what he’s become, and in that position, just behind the main forward, there is no one better.
“In fact, there is no better strike pairing in the world than Gerrard and Torres. They can tear defences wide open in a split second.
“When you have that kind of ability in your team it gives you incredible belief. If we can keep them both free of injury then we are going to take some stopping. There were times last year when we went into games without them and it showed.’
