West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola admitted it was difficult to find an answer to Fernando Torres after he scored twice in Liverpool's 3-2 win at Upton Park.[LNB]Torres struck first in the 19th minute but Alessandro Diamanti was fortunate to level from the penalty spot after slipping as he struck the ball.[LNB]Dirk Kuyt put Liverpool back in front five minutes before the break only for Carlton Cole to equalise for a second time on the stroke of half-time.[LNB]That left Spain forward Torres to head the winner in the 75th minute, and Zola said: "He is a great striker, he is not easy to mark. It is not easy to defend against players like him especially when they are in the form he was."[LNB]"We were unfortunate not to pick up any points. But we will get better."
