Liverpool FC striker Fernando Torres capped off a memorable week by scoring twice against Premier League title rivals Chelsea tonight.
The Spanish football superstar left it until the final few minutes to score a brilliant headed goal from team mate Fabio Aurelio’s cross, before slotting home a Yossi Benayoun pass in front of the Anfield Kop stand.
Liverpool beat Chelsea 2-0 after totally dominating the game, with the away side seeing a straight red card given to their talismanic midfielder Frank Lampard for a challenge on Liverpool’s Xabi Alonso.
Liverpool are now two points behind leaders Manchester United, who have a game in hand.
Prior to his double strike, 24-year-old Torres was honoured with a Breitling Super Avenger watch.
The luxury watch featured a white dial and a red Ocean Racer strap and was rewarded to him for his outstanding debut last season with the Reds.
Torres was presented with the gift by David M Robinson in Church Alley, Liverpool city centre, on Thursday.
Torres also left the jewellers with a beautiful necklace, rumoured to be for his girlfriend Olalla for Valentines Day in less than two weeks.
Following a poll by the official Liverpool FC website, Torres was voted best player of last season, which Jamie Carragher was bestowed with last year for the season before. He also received a watch for the accolade.The watch given to Torres retails for £2,695.
