Gerrard: 4-0 over Madrid was due to fantastic team performance

Great news in Europe for the English clubs as Liverpool and Chelsea got their Champions League quarter-final tickets after sending Real Madrid and Juventus packing.

The outstanding Liverpool went through in a canter, with captain Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres both on target - the England midfielder netting a brace on his 100th European appearance - while Andrea Dossena added the last goal. The result: 4-0 to crush the so called "best team of the 20th century".

Benitez team wrapped up a 5-0 aggregate win following their 1-0 victory at the Bernabeu.

"I'm so happy to see that the first 30 minutes we were awesome," Gerrard said. "It was a fantastic team performance."

Daniel Agger might play in Italian Calcio: Big clubs after him

Inter, Juventus and AC Milan are after defender Daniel Agger. The talented defender will go to Italy soon.

Yes, Agger appeared to be heading out of Anfield in January when Milan moved to take him to the San Siro and opened informal talks about a transfer.

Indeed, the defender has grown frustrated under manager Rafael Benitez after being relegated to the substitutes’ bench on returning from a series of injuries this season.

The Spaniard publicly insists that the footballer remains part of his long-term plans, and in despite of that, there is a growing sense of certainty to Agger leaving.

As we know, both Jose Mourinho and Claudio Ranieri, managers of Inter and Juventus respectively, have been alerted to the prospect of signing Agger, a highly rated Danish international, for a relatively modest fee in the summer, according to a report in the Mail.

Agger has little more than a year to run on his current contract at Liverpool and negotiations over a new deal have almost irretrievably stalled.

It’s amazing to notice that should Agger remain on the fringes of Benitez’s side then a summer move is likely, with Liverpool in a weak bargaining position when it comes to the fee.

We must consider that AC Milan remain the favourites to secure his signature and in despite of that, the competition from the two other Serie A giants may make the deal more problematic that it might otherwise have been.

Liverpool needs more soccer players for Champions League

Liverpool won’t field a full roster at the time the club resumes its Champions League campaign against Real Madrid later this month.

The 2005 European champion failed to replace outgoing players Robbie Keane and Jermaine Pennant on its 25-man roster, a spokesman for UEFA said today. The club may be four short for the Feb. 25 game with captain Steven Gerrard sidelined for three weeks after tearing his left hamstring in last night’s F.A. Cup loss at Everton, and defender Philip Degen already ruled out.

“Liverpool didn’t add any players to the list before the Feb. 1 deadline,” the spokesman said.

Liverpool is just two points behind Manchester United in the chase for the Premier League title, and faces Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League. The club’s attempt to strengthen its squad failed at the time Tottenham refused to include winger Aaron Lennon in its deal for Keane.

The 28-year-old Ireland captain joined Liverpool for 20.3 million pounds ($29.45 million) in July. U.K. media reports said he may have left for as little as 12 million pounds. Neither club revealed the cost of the transaction.

Liverpool’s loss would have been even bigger had they tried to offload Keane at the end of the season, team boss Rafael Benitez said earlier this week.

Benitez is asking for greater control over the way the club handles player acquisitions before agreeing on a contract extension to 2013. He didn’t meet with the club’s American owners at the time they visited for last weekend’s clash against Chelsea.

Torres' double help Liverpool defeat Chelsea

Two goals from Liverpool’s Spanish striker Fernando Torres stunned Chelsea 2–0 in the final moments of a snowy clash at Anfield on Sunday.

Liverpool took over sole possession of second place, two points back of Manchester United. United has a game in hand on all its closest pursuers.

The flashpoint in the game came on the hour at the time Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard tackled his counterpart, Xabi Alonso, with his studs up high and was given a red card.

Chelsea would have been content with a draw after Liverpool dominated the play. Now, new hopes will be restored in Liverpool’s title challenge.

Chelsea keeper Petr Cech kept the Blues in the game after chances fell to Alonso and Yossi Benayoun. Defender Alex stifled the Reds attack and was there to thwart the best chance of the game that fell to Torres.

Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari took off Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka who were absent from the play and brought on Deco and Didier Drogba, which did have a positive effect.

Torres left it to the last minute of full time to get on the score sheet with a near post header from a Fabio Aurelio cross. Then, in the 94th minute of play, he made it two with an easy side foot tap in after Benayoun’s set up. Chelsea’s defense was very sloppy on the second Torres goal.

Steven Gerrard fit to face Marseille for the UEFA Champions League

Liverpool super star Steven Gerrard is available to play against Olympique Marseille in their Champions League Group D game after recovering from a groin injury, manager Rafa Benitez said on Tuesday.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday's match at Anfield, Benitez told the club's website: "He (Gerrard) was training and is available. And I think that he could start and I think he could play 90 minutes, but in the end that depends on the player during the game."

The popular Gerrard tore the adductor magnus muscle in his right leg against Bolton Wanderers in the Premier League on November 15.

As we know, the midfielder missed England's 2-1 victory over Germany last week and Liverpool's game at home to Fulham on Saturday.

Liverpool Football Club, who suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat by Marseille at the same stage last season, are second in Group D and victory at Anfield would put them through to the last 16.

Fernando Torres backs Cristiano Ronaldo for World Best Player Award

According to a famous magazine, Spanish footballer Fernando Torres assured that Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo is the most deserving player of the European and World Player of the Year awards after his amazing performances for the Red Devils in the 2007-08 season.

Indeed, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a magnificent total of 42-goals for the Old Trafford side last season to help them lift the Premier League as well as Champions League title.

Liverpool frontman Torres is also on the 23-man shortlist for the prestigious award, however Torres insisted that the Portuguese International, who has already been named the FIFPro World Player of the Year for 2008 “has class of his own” and should win the award.

"No-one can rival him," Torres expressed. "He is in a class of his own. I have never seen a comparable player.

"I can say that what he did last season is incredible. No-one won this year what he's won: Champions League, Premier League and Golden Boot. Yes, for me he is the best player in the world. A machine. Incomparable" he concluded.

Xavi Alonso seduced by Juventus

Liverpool's midfielder Xabi Alonso admits he is fascinated by the prospect of joining Juventus.

The Italian Powerhouse are expected to sign the Spanish international for around £16million this summer, and the midfielder admits he has always been fascinated by the prospect of playing in Italy.

"We'll see what will happen with Juventus. It's difficult to say,” said Alonso. "I've spent four fantastic years at Liverpool, but I have to admit that I have always been fascinated by Italian league.

"However, it's too soon to talk about the future. In short - we'll see. Juve are one of the biggest clubs in Europe, perhaps the biggest in Italy. They have many fans, not only in Italy, but all over the world.”
