Liverpool's Fernando Torres wants club to bring in Spanish reinforcements

The Spain striker believes Liverpool need "small players with quality" to finally wrestle the Premier League title away from Manchester United and would like Benitez to sign David Silva, Juan Mata or David Villa from Valencia.
"English football is very difficult because it's very physical and played at a high tempo," Torres said. "We have a fantastic team to play against the big teams and we are competitive.
"But maybe against those teams lower down we are not good enough. We have to improve that and I think we can.
"I think we can definitely be stronger at home. We have some very good players but maybe we need other players. I hope Liverpool will bring people like Silva, Mata or Villa. These are small players with quality like United had with Carlos Tevez and also with Paul Scholes.
"They are clever players and maybe they can make the difference. Yossi Benayoun plays like these kind of players and I hope we can bring more like that so then we have different options to play against all the sides."
The former Atletico Madrid forward added: "It was frustrating but football is difficult against the smaller teams. We need players with quality to try to win these matches and I want Liverpool to sign players like this.
"We finished four points behind United but we are improving. We are getting more points every season. I know that every year we can finish with more points. I have recommended the names to Benitez and I hope we have the money."
