Liverpool v Bolton Betting Preview

Liverpool have won the last nine Premier League meetings between the teams

Bolton meet Liverpool this Saturday afternoon as The Trotters try to take a point from The Reds at the tenth time of asking.

Liverpool have won the last nine Premier League meetings between the teams and have done so without conceding a goal in six of those games. Owen Coyle’s side will need to buck a trend that stretches back to September 2006 if they are to add to the three points that they won on the opening day against QPR.

And they’ll need to do it without the services of Gretar Steinsson, Sam Ricketts, Tyrone Mears and Marcos Alonso who are all sidelined. Dedryck Boyata could make his debut having completed his loan move from Manchester City.

Glen Johnson’s fitness will be assessed prior to the game but Raul Meireles is out for a few weeks with a collarbone injury. Luis Suarez is expected to start having begun last weekend’s game against Arsenal on the bench.

Coyle’s side began the season in emphatic fashion, dispatching an off-guard QPR 4-0. But that was a rare win on the road for a side who had the worst away record in the Premier League last season.

Liverpool began their season with an eye-catching first-half performance against Sunderland, then built on that to take all three points from their trip to the Emirates. Kenny Dalglish has his side playing with verve and confidence; at present they are one of the least desirable opponents in the Premier League.

The recent head-to-head record means that odds on a home win are an unsurprisingly short 2/5. While the Liverpool win to nil – that has occurred in six of the last nine meetings – is priced at a more appealing 5/4.
