Liverpool striker Fernando Torres says he hopes his two goals against West Ham on Saturday will inspire to go on a goalscoring run of form over the next few weeks.
Torres had looked tired and out-of-sorts in the early few games of this season, but hit back with a brace at Upton Park as the Reds beat the Hammers 3-2 in the Premier League.
He says, “I hope there will be many more goals. I know when I’m working hard they will arrive so I have to keep working hard all the time for the team.”
Torres also wanted to give his special thanks to substitute Ryan Babel who came on late to set up Torres’ second of the match, and Liverpool’s winner.
He added, “Everyone knows Ryan is a fantastic player.
“He played on the right wing and he gave me a fantastic cross which was easy for me to attack the ball and score. It is easy for a striker when the cross is as good as that.
“He is a player with quality who can do things like this, so without Ryan I couldn’t have scored. It’s thanks to him I could score the goal to win it for us.”
