MARTIN KELLY has suffered another crushing disappointment after he picked up an injury which will end his season.

FERNANDO TORRES today warned Liverpool's Champions League rivals he is fired up for the challenge of helping inspire a "perfect" end to the season.

When Liverpool skulked out of Old Trafford last Sunday, deflated like a cheap beach ball, the manner in which they allowed Manchester United to breeze past them suggested mounting a push for Champions League qualification would be a bridge too far.

A SIMPLE beach ball has epitomised much of the misery for Liverpool's tortured support this season. Yesterday, however, it helped bring the smiles back on the faces of everyone at Anfield.
As they watched their team comprehensively dismantle Sunderland in thrilling fashion, the home fans momentarily turned their attentions to the visiting dugout and regular nemesis Steve Bruce.
"He's got a head like a beach ball" sang the Kop in unison, prompting an outbreak of laughter throughout the stadium that the Sunderland manager couldn't help but join.
