Liverpool (0) Bolton Wanderers (0): Reds Don’t Do Quite Enough as Trotters Secure Replay

The last thing we needed was another match on the fixture list, but Liverpool will be heading to the Midlands Lancashire in ten days time after failing to create enough — or capitalizing on what they did — as a dogged Bolton Wanderers side held on to force a replay at the Macron Stadium. With…

Bolton Wanderers FA Cup Preview: The Black-Eye Threat Level Has Been Raised

I remember a time when trips to the Reebok Stadium were met with groans; Bolton Wanderers, for a brief period there, always seemed to have our number. Call it a “bogey team”, call it what you will, but the Trotters seemed extra keen to cause us problems in one way or another. They may be…

Liverpool (1) Chelsea (1): Sterling Strikes as Reds Come From Behind

There’s everything to play for when these two sides meet next week at Stamford Bridge after Raheem Sterling’s second half strike saw Liverpool came from behind to pull level with Chelsea at Anfield. The hosts enjoyed the early run of the game with Thibaut Courtois tipping over a pile-driver of a shot from Steven Gerrard,…

It took extra time and a whole lot of nerves, but Chelsea made up for their weekend capitulation to League One side Bradford City in the FA Cup by sneaking past Liverpool to secure a spot in the League Cup final. Against the best team in the land, the Reds put in more than a good account of themselves over the two legs despite coming up short — yet again — in front of the net.

The lowlights.

An inability to find the net at the weekend put Liverpool in a precarious position by allowed Bolton Wanderers to snag a replay in the FA Cup, and that worrying trend carried on as the Reds were knocked out of the League Cup by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Despite being arguably the best team in the land, it took the Blues until extra time before they could fashion a winner with Branislav Ivanovic’s free header from a Willian free-kick from the edge of the box enough to secure Jose Mourniho’s men safe passage to Wembley Stadium. On the back of such a pulsating affair, it’d be a bit harsh to say that Liverpool’s defending let them down again — to be fair, this one should have been wrapped up long before the Serbian nodded home.

We’ve got confidence

Cup competitions always pose a huge question mark, but following the surprising results at the weekend, the second leg of tomorrow’s League Cup semi-final has become even more unpredictable.

After dominating Chelsea in the first leg, Liverpool followed up that performance with a scoreless draw against Championship side Bolton Wanderers at Anfield, allowing the Trotters to secure themselves a lucrative replay. While the added strain of an additional fixture crammed into an already bursting schedule is a conversation better suited for another day, it’s a talk that the Blues wouldn’t mind having after they were dumped out of the competition by League One side Bradford City in front of their own fans.

SturridgeRoadtoRecovery

No messing about

Although returning Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge will be given a late fitness test ahead of the second leg of their League Cup semi-final showdown with Chelsea on Tuesday, the Reds aren’t about to gamble with the fitness of their star man confirmed boss Brendan Rodgers.

“No. It doesn’t matter how big the game is, there is no point in Daniel being out all this time to just rush him back” said the Northern Irishman when asked if there’s temptation to rush the 25-year old back into the squad. “The other players have shown in this period that they can perform, so we wouldn’t risk him, no. Of course he wants to be involved in the big games between now and the end of the season, and this is one. But we have to be realistic and careful with him. We have to make sure he is available for a sustainable length of time.”

What is reality?

With Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers throwing the future of struggling striker Mario Balotelli even further into question following his revelations that the 24-year hasn’t been doing his bit in training, Italian side Lazio have in return done nothing to quell speculation that they’re looking to take him back to Serie A on loan for the remainder of the season.

Balotelli has been linked with a temporary move to a number of different teams after falling far out of favour on Merseyside, but with only a handful of days left in the transfer window, Lazio are emerging as the favorites to take stewardship of the controversial hit-man with the Roman side making the most noise out of all of the pack rumoured to be chasing his signature. Now, whether or not there’s any truth in this remains to be seen, but for the time being anyway, their not doing anything to distance themselves from the controversial striker.
