The Spaniard impressed at Anfield between 2007 and 2011 and is a favourite of Reds fans despite exiting for Chelsea.

Liverpool wished Torres a happy birthday on their Twitter account to which he responded by offering his support to his former club in the title race.

The Reds currently sit top of the Premier League, one point clear of Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have played one more match than their rivals though.

Torres took to Twitter to thank Liverpool for their message and let them know he would be cheering them on.

He said: “Thank you Reds!!!

“All the best for the rest of the season I’ll be cheering for you!!!

“Big times ahead!!!”

One player who will be key to Liverpool lifting the Premier League trophy is Sadio Mane.

The Senegal international has netted 11 goals in 11 games and Klopp has praised the forward.

He told Liverpool’s website: “He is in a really good moment, of course.

“Sadio played pretty much always like this but now he is always in the right spot in the right moment. In football it’s sometimes like this.

“The only thing he did when he was not always in the right spot was work and work and work. That’s exactly what Mo has to do, exactly the same: just work, do the right things and it will come again.

“He’s just rather unlucky, where Sadio is lucky in the moment – he is in brilliant shape, that’s true.

“But then, he is in the right shape and maybe a yard away from him is Mo, but somebody else scored; the cross from Robbo [at Fulham], I’m pretty sure Mo would have scored if Gini doesn’t get the ball.

“These moments… I was a striker, I had that as well, you think, ‘Oh’ and then somebody else missed the chance. That’s how it is, all good.

“But, of course, it’s a brilliant moment for him [Mane].”

Liverpool return to action after the international break against Tottenham on Sunday, March 31.
