Torres and Keane have failed to form a productive partnership at Anfield
Liverpool legend Ian Rush says Fernando Torres and Robbie Keane must be played together up front if the Reds are to win a first League title since 1990.
The duo have started just nine games in tandem since Keane joined for £20m in July and have scored only four goals between them while both on the pitch.
Rush told BBC Sport: "They've not had a chance to get a partnership going yet.
"Torres has not been fit but given time together they can take the team to the level that is needed to win the title."
Rafa Benitez's side are two points clear of second-placed Manchester United at the top of the Premier League but their recent form, particularly at Anfield, has been unconvincing.
And Rush, who formed a prolific pairing with Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool in the 1980s on his way to becoming the club's record scorer with 346 goals, feels Torres and Keane would prove a timely boost to the Reds' season if they belatedly spark together.
"Without a doubt, the key for me to Liverpool winning the League is if they get their partnership going," he explained.
