The Reds found themselves coming from a 2-0 win away against Arsenal and looked to build on it, and they did so with a resounding 3-1 victory against Bolton Wanderers at home.

Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Martin Skrtel recorded goals as hapless Bolton managed to grab a consolation goal in the closing minutes through Ivan Klasnic. It was Henderson and Adam's first-ever goals as Liverpool players.
