Latest LFC news from the Liverpool ECHO
LIVERPOOL are facing up to the prospect of kicking off their Europa League campaign without a handful of star names.
SPAIN forward David Villa has launched a staunch defence of Fernando Torres and insists he is "totally convinced" his strike partner will regain his scoring touch.
IN AN OPEN letter to the Liverpool ECHO, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport Jeremy Hunt said: "I apologise unreservedly to the families of the 96 who lost their lives at the Hillsborough tragedy for the comments I made yesterday in an interview. It was a genuine mistake, and I deeply, deeply regret the offence that it has caused to the people of Liverpool. I know full well, as the Taylor Report found, that fan unrest played no part in the terrible events of April 1989.
