Roy Hodgson heaped praise on Fernando Torres after his awesome double sank Chelsea on Sunday - but warned against any complacency heading into a critical week in our season.The Reds climbed to ninth in the Barclays Premier League following the 2-0 win - and with six points available in the next six days, that position could soon look even healthier.
Speaking to reporters after the game, Hodgson shared his delight that Torres proved to be the headline maker after a tough start to the campaign - and now he wants to see more of the same against Wigan and Stoke.
"I'm pleased with the all-round performance and I'm also pleased that Fernando Torres will get a lot of the plaudits," said the boss."He's taken more than his fair share of criticism, some of which has been grossly exaggerated and certainly not fully deserved.
"Of course, when the team's not winning it's hard to defend these things but today he'll get a lot of plaudits and people will say he's back to his best. Let's hope that's the case but certainly today he was. He played very, very well.( Collapse )SOURCEWHAT AN AMAZING DAY. SERIOUSLY. STILL AMAZED/SHOCKED/ECSTATIC WE WON TODAY. AND IF ANYONE KNOWS WHERE I CAN WATCH THE MATCH PLEASE SHARE WITH ME. But the Agger news makes me so sad. I miss him SO much, and it looks like he'll be out for quite sometime. :/
