We don't need to spend big to win the title, insists Torres

Fernando Torres says no amount of spending by Manchester United and Chelsea during the summer will stop Liverpool's relentless quest forthe Premier League title.
Before Spain met host nation South Africa in their final group gameof the Confederations Cup last night, Torres revealed just how focusedhe is on breaking United's stranglehold on the title and emulating thegreat Liverpool forwards of the past.
The club's own finances are under serious scrutiny, with only amonth left for joint owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks to find newways of servicing a £350million debt, and Torres realises Liverpool'sspending power may not match that of their rivals.
The evidence of that comes with Chelsea hoping to steal Portsmouthand England right-back Glen Johnson from the grasp of Rafael Benitez,and Xabi Alonso being lured to Real Madrid.
