BOLTON WANDERERS - LIVERPOOL
Goals were always going to be a huge problem for Bolton after they sold Anelka and so, it has proved. They have only beaten a struggling Reading side in six league outings, scoring just twice in the other 5. They have a great record against Liverpool at the Reebok and will doubtless be tough to break down. However, think the penny has finally dropped with Benitez, domestically and he realises how vital this top 4 spot is, a win today will put them back on track, especially with home games in the coming week against West Ham and Newcastle. Playing at lunchtime, they can also put pressure on rivals Everton, who currently hold the 4th place and face a tricky home tie with Portsmouth late afternoon. Man for man this is a no brainer and I expect another totally committed performance from the visitors.
LIVERPOOL :Reina, Carragher, Aurelio, Skrtel, Hyypia, Mascherano, Gerrard, Alonso, Babel, Kuyt, Torres. Subs: Martin, Riise, Benayoun, Crouch, Arbeloa.
