El Nino tots up a half-century
Fernando Torres became the fastest Liverpool player to bag 50 league goals with his strike against Aston Villa. The injury-time effort gave the Reds a vital 1-0 victory.
The match was Torres’ 72nd league game. Only Andy Cole, Alan Shearer and Ruud Van Nistelrooy reached the milestone faster than the Spaniard.
It is fair to say that ex-Liverpool player Stephen Warnock deserves some of the accolades!
