Bolton face Liverpool at the Reebok, with Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres competing on who can go face down on the turf the most times.

Vital Quotes:

‘They always play with the same system, and have their way of playing football. I learned a lot about their style when we played them earlier this season and lost 1-0. They played with different rules and I learned a lot. The only thing is, you want the referee to see the same thing you see this time.”

A vintage Fatty Benitez whinge from 2005. He’ll be saying much the same before the game this time. He always does.

Bolton Team News:

Gavin McCann is doubtful with a back injury, as is sicknote Helguson. Danny Guthrie is ineligible, just like scousers really. Or is that illegitimate?

Player to watch: El Hadji Diouf

Yet to recover from his extended drinking sessions at the Africa Cup of Nations. Now would be a good time to do so.

Liverpool Team News:

Voronin is still crocked, but Daniel Agger, Harry Kewell and Xabi Alonso are available after injury.

Player to watch: Fernando Torres

Give the vertically challenged Spaniard space, and he’s lethal.
