Could Torres be the Player of the Year in England?

I'll be honest, I'm not the biggest Liverpool fan, but one thing is becoming evident Ferrando Torres might be the best player in the EPL. Few people come into the league and dominate the way that he has this year after his 20 million pound move from Atletico Madrid in summer. Usually players take some time to settle in, but there has been no waiting around for Torres. So far this season he has scored 26 goals in all competitions, including the one which clinched a spot in the last eight for Liverpool in the Champions League today.

Ronaldo has been terrific but take a look what he has around him, Nani, Rooney, Tevez, Giggs, and Scholes. If you took Ronaldo away from United it would not be as bad as it would be if you took Torres from Liverpool.

Look at the support that Torres has up front, players like Dirk Kuyt and Voronin. Not exactly Nani and Rooney is it. So for those reason I can not help but think that Torres should be near the top of the EPL Player of the year race.
