By some miracle beyond our comprehension, Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has been declared fit for Sunday’s keenly awaited Merseyside derby at Goodison. Wouhou!
The sicknote Spaniard tore an adductor muscle in Liverpool’s shock defeat to Blackpool a couple of weeks ago. He also missed Spain’s Euro 2012 qualifying wins over Lithuania and Scotland – not that Spain missed him much. If he was a racehorse, teenagers would be sniffing him by now.
But after intensive treatment (Ian Rush and Kenny Dalglish poured holy water on him, through a vuvuzela), Torres resumed training on Wednesday and is set to start against Everton.
It’s a big boost for Liverpool… We can’t wait until he goes off midway through the first half.
