Liverpool vs Bolton: Reds can end Saturday top of the table

| 27.08.2011

With Manchester United and Manchester City not in action until Sunday, Saturday offers a chance for Liverpool to go top of the league – especially with Aston Villa playing Wolves.

While we are still in the early stages of the season, to be top at this stage would be a complete contrast to Liverpool’s start last season and there will be plenty of optimism around Anfield at the moment.

Match Odds

Liverpool are the short 2/5 favourites to win because Bolton have never won at Anfield in the Premier League.

The last time Bolton managed to win at Anfield was back in 1954 and Owen Coyle knows his side have a tough task on their hands and the bookies agree, making them the 7/1 outsiders.

Bolton have managed to take just one point from a possible 36 at Anfield in the Premier League and Liverpool look the bankers of the weekend.

Total Goals

Liverpool have won, and scored at least two, in all of their last five home matches with Bolton and four of those were win to nils – Liverpool to win to nil is 6/4.

Bolton have managed to score just once – last season – at Anfield since 2004 and punters can be confident of a Liverpool clean sheet against a side lacking in consistent goalscorers.

Six of the nine goals these two teams have scored this season have come in the second half so back the a half-time draw/a Liverpool full-time win at 11/4 and take the 6/1 for Liverpool to win 2-0.

Luis Suarez has already got two goals this season and punters looking for bigger odds can get 18/1 that Suarez scores first and Liverpool win 2-0 in the scorecast.
