It’s been a couple of decent weeks for Liverpool. “Rookie” Fernando Torres had the chance to become the first Liverpool player since Ian Rush (check out that picture, can you be more legend material?) to score a back-to-back Hattrick, unfortunately that didn’t happen. But today against West Ham (back-to-back-to-back if you will) he did it again, bang bang bang and it was 3-0 Liverpool. To top it up Captain Fantastic scored a scorcher in the top right corner to make it 4-0 in the end, it was a good night!
Besides EPL, the first teams to make the quarters of the Champions League was decided. Surprisingly AC Milan and Real Madrid went out against Arsenal and Roma respectively. This was actually the forth year in a row that Real didn’t even make the quarters …
Oh, and more statistics about Torres is of course that with the three goals against ‘Boro and now Hammers he has broken two club records (and in style too). He is now officially the foreigner that has scored the most league goals in one season for Liverpool as well as being the foreigner that has scored the most goals in total in a season, the “in style” comes from these numbers;
Most league goals/season by a foreign player:
18 – Fernando Torres.
12 – Dirk Kuyt
9 – Titi Camara, Patrik Berger, Milan Baros (2 times), Djibril Cisse
8 – Luis Garcia
Most goals in total/season by a foreign player:
24 – Fernando Torres
19 – Djibril Cisse
14 – Dirk Kuyt
13 – Milan Baros, Luis Garcia
