An odd game really. Liverpool totally dominated everything but the scoreline, Unirea's best player on the night was their goalie and if I was Rafa I would keep an eye on him as a back up for Reina. I thought he was good coming for high balls and stopped almost everything that came at him.

Liverpool missed a hat full of chances against Arsenal and will have no better opportunity to defeat Arsenal away from home then they did this Wednesday night.
Liverpool were missing their big gun in the absence of Torres and had he been playing and fit this would have been a different game. David Ngog had done pretty well but he is young but even at the age of 25 he won't be anything like Torres.

Liverpool came up trumps with their gritty, hard working and physical display as they fully deserved all the three points. David Moyes might feel the gap has closed between Liverpool and Everton but Everton had a very difficult time dealing with their man advantage.
Let me know start off by saying that I thought the referee was awful. Fellaini should have been off well before the tackle with Kyrgiakos. He Rugby tackled Kyrgiakos in the box during a corner kick and then he purposely slid into the face of Kuyt, after the whistle had gone. Both of these actions were completely ignored/missed by this referee. Then unbelievably, the major talking point of the match between Fellaini and Kyrgiakos saw the referee completely ignore the big haired thug as he showed a straight red to the greek letting Fellaini away with assault. Some justice was served as Fellaini was not able to return to action as his further participation in the match would have been a joke.

Well another meeting with our pesky neighbours is approaching and Everton are on a pretty good run of form at the moment. Everton's first half display against Man City was the best 45 minutes I had seen all year, until this Sunday, when United destroyed Arsenal. Everton were simply brilliant in that match so this will be a tough derby, as they always are.
Liverpool's recent performances have been better, but without Torres we just lack that fire power up front that can be so important in these games. I'm not sure what kind of team Liverpool will line up with but I don't see Alberto getting a start in this match. I think Rafa will go with Lucas and Mascherano in the middle of the park, but one of the brilliant things about our manager is that he is unpredictable.

So Liverpool gained a valuable 3 points at home to Bolton on Saturday. The performance in the first half was not great as Bolton had two very good chances to score but this was a much better performance then midweek against Wolves.
Steven Gerrard was our most improved player as he was being man marked for most of the match but his work rate and movement was much better. Our defense also looked pretty strong, the big greek in the middle doing very well.
