Torres is back in action

3 Jan

Fernando Torres made a substitute appearance for Liverpool today in their 2-0 3rd round FA Cup game against Preston North End.  He even scored a late goal off a dish from Steven Gerrard.  It’s Torres’ first appearance for Liverpool since the end of November.

Proof that Fernando Torres was back in action for Liverpool today.

It’s nice to have Torres back in the lineup…well, nice for everyone except Robbie Keane I’m sure, who struggled mightily in front of goal today.  Despite the victory, the Liverpool side took a couple hits.  Xabi Alonso limped off the field at the end of the first half and later returned to the sideline in a walking boot.  Later in the second half, Javier Mascherano also came off with what looked like a hamstring injury.  Hopefully neither player will have to miss any additional time.
