Torres has only scored one goal in his last eight appearances and has looked like he's carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders in recent games. Dalglish has vowed to help him regain his top form.

"He might be lacking a little bit of confidence, but he is still a top goal scorer and someone everybody fears when he crosses the line and goes on to the pitch," said the boss.

"I've got fantastic respect for Fernando, not only as a footballer but also as a person as well. When he signed for the club he really threw himself into learning about the history and the tradition of the club, he really soaked it all up.

"I hope I can help him and I will help him in whatever way I possibly can. But then I would say that about any one of the players at this football club.

"We will give them as much support as we all possibly can, and not just to Fernando."

"I can pass on advice and I will try and help him in any way, shape or form, but, as I say, it's the same for all the players.

"We've got to try and help each other. We've got to have respect and belief in what we are doing and carry that onto the pitch. We have to continue working as hard as we possibly can to turn things around."
