Fernando Torres says he can top last season’s 33-goal tally after rediscovering his scoring form to earn Liverpool a 2-0 victory over Everton.The striker had been out of touch this term, with just one goal since his Euro 2008 heroics for Spain.The Spaniard scored a brace in the second-half to take the spoils for the Reds in the Merseyside derby.

In a scrappy first-half, it was Cahill who had the home side’s best chance early on when he failed to find the target form six yards out.

David Moyes’ side were unlucky not to grab the lead on the half-hour mark when Marouane Fellaini’s flicked header hit Jamie Carragher on the line but the midfielder was penalised for a foul on Jose Reina, while Yakubu lashed a shot wide minutes later from the edge of the box.

With Robbie Keane continuing to struggle, Torres was the visitors’ main threat and only a brilliant block by Phil Jagielka denied the striker.
The second half was also a dire affair with Liverpool restricted to long-range efforts with Steven Gerrard flashing a strike from 30 yards wide of Tim Howard’s goal.Rafael Benitez’s side finally broke the deadlock on the hour mark when Keane’s inviting cross from the left was volleyed in by Torres.
Keane, who has not scored in ten games for the Reds, was involved in the second goal on 63 minutes when his through ball found Dirk Kuyt who was tackled by Jagielka, but the ball fell to Torres who whacked his shot into the top-corner.
The Spaniard thought he had sealed his hat-trick four minutes later when he chested down and fired the ball into the corner but referee Mark Riley disallowed the goal for a foul by Kuyt in the build-up.Cahill was given his marching orders for an x-rated challenge on Alonso towards the end of the match.
