Liverpool FC defender Martin Skrtel can’t wait to come up against former Reds team mate Fernando Torres at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
Torres has been in good form for Chelsea so far this season, scoring seven goals in 17 appearances in all competitions.
But Skrtel is desperate to ensure the Spaniard doesn’t register against his former club when the two sides meet in the Premier League on Sunday, but admits he is expecting a tough time keeping him quiet.
He told Liverpool’s official website: “Now he is playing for Chelsea and if I play I will be marking him.
“It is going to be special but we have to look after him because even if he isn’t scoring goals at the moment he is still one of the best strikers in the world and still dangerous.
“It is going to be hard playing against him but I believe in my qualities and the quality of our team and I believe we won’t let him score.”
Skrtel went on to praise Chelsea’s strong start to the season but reiterated that he is confident Liverpool can cause a bit of an upset at Stamford Bridge.
“They are close to the top of the table and it is going to be a tough game,” he added.
“Games against Chelsea are always tough and this one is going to be the same and we just hope we can get the three points.
“Every single game is different and it is going to be different on Sunday. The game always starts at 0-0 and it is about our performance on the day. I hope our performance will be better than Chelsea and we can get the three points.”
