Torres inspires Liverpool to victory over Hull

Fernando Torres continued his good run of form for Liverpool with a brilliant hat-trick away to relegation bets Hull City. The Spain striker scored a first half brace before bagging his third in the second half as the Reds ran out 6-1 winners.

Geovanni had equalized for Hull midway through the first half but Liverpool's superiority was never in doubt. Skipper Steven Gerrard also got his name on the score sheet before substitute Ryan scored a late brace.

Hull haven't won away from home for nine games and never looked like threatening an upset against last year's runners up. When Torres opened the scoring for Liverpool on 11-minutes the three points never looked in doubt.
