Fernando Torres marked his first Premier League start of 2010 by hitting the winner as Liverpool beat Blackburn 2-1 on Sunday.
Keith Andrews scored a shock equaliser for Rovers from the penalty spot to cancel out Steven Gerrard's 10th goal of the season before Torres struck in the 44th minute to leave Liverpool sixth in the table, one point behind Tottenham and Manchester City.
On Saturday, Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey suffered a horrific leg injury against Stoke that will keep him sidelined for months.
Ramsey, 19, was taken off on a stretcher and into a waiting ambulance at the side of the pitch after a challenge from Stoke’s 22-year-old defender Ryan Shawcross.
Players from both sides looked shocked after the incident. Sky Sports announced they would not replay the incident as it would be “too upsetting” for their viewers. Ramsey was treated for several minutes and had an oxygen mask on his face before he was taken away. His team responded with two late goals to win 3-1.
