Everyone is hoping that things have finally turned around following our victory against Blackburn Rovers last Sunday. The Reds have had a week off and are now prepared to start climbing up the table.
A victory or a draw will take us out of the bottom three however we really need the three points badly, Roy Hodgson hasn’t had a lot of success on the road so this can be very challenging. Last Halloween we played Roy’s Fulham at Craven Cottage and it was a nightmare for us Reds. Hopefully Roy didn’t throw away his spell book from that day and can apply some wizardry tomorrow. Bolton are currently in 8th place and shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Glen Johnson, Dirk Kuyt and Daniel Agger are still injured while Ryan Babel picked up an injury while playing for the reserves mid-week. My feeling is that Roy will keep most of the players who played last Sunday with a few tweaks, I still believe that Fabio Aurelio and Lucas Leiva are better options than Paul Konchesky and Christian Poulsen.
Pepe Reina, Jamie Carragher, Sotirios Kyrgiakos, Martin Skrtel, Fabio Aurelio, Lucas Leiva, Raul Meireles, Steven Gerrard, Milan Jovanovic, Joe Cole, Fernando Torres
Kick off is at 4PM BST
