I just saw the highlights this evening but we were passing Bolton off the park all the way through the game.
Corner after corner following flowing moves from wing to wing resulting in a three goal triumph against an in-form Bolton.
Truth was we made them look like relegation fodder, with two scintillating goals from Robbie Keane and a cheeky one from Riera, this was a consummate win from a top of the table side.
Next up a tricky trip to Newcastle on Sunday and here's hoping we can secure another valuable win to stay top of the table again, cheers

So, its Bolton at Anfield tomorrow and I hope its three points in the bag to keep us on top.
To cut a long story short, 3-1 to the reds.
Gerrard to open the scoring, Keane to get the next and Torres to come on as a sub and get the third.

I couldnt take my eyes of this match, end to end stuff and all that.
Having gone two goals down inside twenty minutes, Liverpool roared back with two from Steven Gerrard to go in at half-time level.
Liverpool drew breath and went at Hull again, looking for that all-important winner.
It never came, despite the reds best efforts, Hull held on for a deserved point.
Although we dropped two points again at home, I was very happy with the attitude and performance of the team. Yes its a bit of a setback but i'm fairly happy with the overall display of the team.

This must be the end for the englishman who has failed to establish himself at anfield.
He was the subject of a five million bid from Stoke last summer, but the winger was reluctant to leave at the time due to personal terms.
Now with the January transfer window approaching, Rafa must be keen to offload the lad as he doesnt seem to have any future at anfield.

True, he has not been an instant success at his boyhood club, in fact, he has had a poor start to his Liverpool career scoring only two goals against West Brom in total in the league.
However, it seems much too soon to write him off in my opinion.
Having scored 163 goals in english league football, he undoubtably knows how to find the back of the net.
The fact that Torres has spent much of the season out injured has meant that the dream ticket has not had a chance to develop.
Instead Keane has had to lead the line on his own upfront, which is simply not his game.
You feel that a fit Torres and Keane partnership would unsettle most defences.
I for one hope he is given the time he needs to make an impact at this great club.

However, it was an uninspiring performance for much of the game. Liverpool were not at their best today so it was satisfying to see them take their chances when they came.
Alonso planted the ball home from a Gerrard cross, Benayoun scored a great individual goal from a sublime Dirk Kuyt pass.
Blackburn did get one back from Santa Cruz to cause a few nervous moments, but Steven Gerrard scored the third after good work by sub Albert Rieira.
Thankfully, Liverpool won and stay on top of the league!
