LIVERPOOL - Fernando Torres believes Liverpool can rescue a disappointing season by winning the FA Cup and ending Anfield's four-year wait for a trophy.
Having fallen away in the race for the Premier League title as well as being eliminated from the Champions League, the FA Cup and the Europa League represent Rafa Benitez's last chances of ending this campaign with some silverware.
Liverpool will entertain Premier League strugglers Burnley in the fourth round of the Cup if they overcome Reading, from England's second tier, in a replay at Anfield today.
Though Liverpool beat Chelsea in the Community Shield in August 2006, the Merseyside club's last major piece of silverware was in May 2006, when they defeated West Ham to win the FA Cup.
Torres, at Atletico Madrid at the time, remembers watching that final on television in Spain.
Despite hitting 62 goals in 104 appearances, he has yet to win anything at Liverpool, but the Spain international has not given up hope of ending this season with a medal.
"I remember watching the 2006 FA Cup final when Liverpool played against West Ham, it was a great match," Torres said.
"In this country it is the most important trophy after the title. Of course we want to finish in the top four too. If we could do that and win the FA Cup it would be the best season we've had for the past three or four years.
"I know we finished second last year, but to win something and finish in the top four would be better than that."
Benitez has often used the early rounds of the FA Cup to give fringe players a chance to stake a claim, but the Spaniard says the competition is more important than ever to Liverpool this season.
