Liverpool striker: ‘Win over Arsenal the best night of my career’

Strong words from Mr Fernando Torres, who left his beloved Atletico Madrid in the summer to join the Reds. However, if you needed any proof that the Liverpool striker was enjoying life with Liverpool, the Echo reports that the Spaniard has cited Tuesday night as the best of his relatively short career.

He said: “It was special for all of us because of the work that we put in.

“To score four goals against a very good side is a good achievement for us and we are all very proud.

“It was the biggest night of my career and I came to Liverpool for nights like this.

“It is unbelievable – the high tempo of both teams, the fans, everything.

“It was a great game for Liverpool and for Arsenal but the most important thing for us is that we are now in the semi-finals.”

Indeed, would beating Barcelona or Manchester United in the final surpass their achievement this week? El Nino has plenty to look forward to in the coming months, with some exciting Champions League games against Chelsea, a potential final in Moscow, not to mention Euro 2008 where Spain bid to shed their tag of so-called underachievers. With Torres on fire, anything is possible.
