Torres targets title push

Spain international Fernando Torres insists Liverpool can still clinch their first title since 1990.

In-form Manchester United are most peoples' favourites to clinch their third successive Premier League title, but Rafa Benitez's side remain only two points adrift after coming from behind to win 3-2 at Portsmouth on Saturday.

Torres, who scored the dramatic late winner at Fratton Park, told Liverpool's official website: "We began very well and at the moment we're going through a period which isn't the best.

"But we're not bad. Maybe it's just that we're stifled by lesser teams who are happy with a draw. We are better against the big teams and we have to show that against Real Madrid.

"We're getting players back that have been absent with injury like me.

"It all depends on how you look at things. You can be pessimistic and think we have been knocked out of the cup and that it was tough for us to win.

"Or you can think positively, which is what I do, and see that we are fighting for the league, that we're in the last 16 of the Champions League, that on the whole we are better than previous years. "That's what I think."
