Liverpool fans could not help but remember this fixture from last year, as it was Hodgson's second last game in charge, and some guy call Torres scored his last ever Liverpool goal.

This year, though, there were very different emotions floating round Anfield. 

Liverpool started this match well, demonstrating the pass and move style that we love so much, Suarez being central to it as usual. After 15 minutes of this, Suarez (how odd!) broke down the wing and crossed with the outside of his boot, showing of his incredible skill set.

Kuyt then got on the end of this and was denied only by a fantastic save from the Bolton keeper. However, the ball then fell to Henderson, who scored on his second attempt.

Bolton then responded well, pressing Liverpool's defence for the first time. Nothing came of it, though, and as the sides headed in at half time, the score was still 1-0 to Liverpool.

Seven minutes into the second half, in the 52nd minute, Charlie Adam floated a corner into the box, only for Martin Skrtel to head home powerfully from close range. Liverpool fans had not started celebrating just yet, though, because Liverpool have never gone on to win a match in which Skrtel has scored.

Fans started believing that this match was the exception of that statistic when Charlie Adam hit the ball across the goal beyond the reach of Jaaskelainen, making the score line 3-0 in Liverpool's favour. 

But Bolton never gave up, and in the 92nd minute, after a rare mistake from Carragher, the ball broke to Klasnic, who converted the consolation goal from close range, thereby ruining my fantasy league prospects. 

That was my match report, and I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Also, as usual, I appreciate any comments.
