The Reds’ suffered a devastating blow last night when they were defeated by Bolton at the Reebok Stadium 3-1.
Liverpool were woeful nearly from the start, when in the third minute Bolton’s Mark Davies, assisted by former Liverpool striker David Ngog, had no problems getting past Red defenders and keeper Pepe Reina to put the ball into the lower right corner.
Seven minutes later, Craig Bellamy gave some hope of somewhat of a comeback for Liverpool. The goal itself is sloppy but Bellamy takes a pass from Andy Carroll, skips the ball over the keeper and it slowly made its way into the net with Bolton’s Zat Knight chasing after it with no hope of stopping the goal.
Bolton’s third and final goal came in the second half from a corner kick. Steinsson’s powerful shot into the lower left corner left Liverpool with little to no hope of making a comeback.
Manager Kenny Dalglish said after the match: “There's nobody been at this football club that's not had respect for other people. If that is what the problem was then, that they thought this game wasn't as important a game as the next one, then fine but they'll not be here.”
