Impressive Reds Outplay Trotters For 10th Consecutive Win

With over £110m spent over the summer and more to come, Liverpool impressively outplayed Bolton at Anfield over the weekend. As a true measure of Liverpool's stylish performance, Kevin Davies was substituted in that match. Liverpool completely subdued the Trotters' captain and talisman!

Two summer recruits, Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam scored two excellent goals in a game that Liverpool could have won by four or five. Luis Suarez once again became the Reds' one-man demolition team, and he literally brought Bolton to their knees. Liverpool's quick movement in the Bolton half truly left Owen Coyle's men chasing shadows and Liverpool always found a free player to start attacks from.

Though Suarez was menacing, his theatrical dives and rants do make him walk a tightrope with referees. El Pistolero will need to be a lot more clinical with his finishing if he harbours hopes to win the Premier League golden boot. Nevertheless, the Copa America winner remains King Kenny's most creative player and he is such a thorn for opposition defenders.

Lucas was my man of the match against Bolton. The Brazilian was everywhere, snapping at the heels of Bolton players. I felt that little Lucas was the reason for a surprisingly ineffectual Kevin Davies.

There were some concerns though watching an otherwise superb Reds' performance.

Firstly, the introduction of Andy Carroll disrupted the attacking verve and flow of Liverpool's game. At this time, it would be hard for Dalglish to start Carroll. The worry is that Carroll will end up being used sparingly like Peter Crouch was by Benitez. After seeing how the giant demolished Liverpool last season, I still think the 22-year old is better than he has looked so far in a Liverpool shirt.

Secondly, Martin Kelly's fragile hamstring must be a worry for Liverpool and England. Full backs are areas that the Reds are still weak in, Martin Kelly's defensive abilities makes him a more safer option than Glen Johnson.

Kenny Dalglish has added effectively to a previously thin squad and now the Reds can boast of having a top four squad once more. I just can't help wondering though, if Fernando Torres is kicking himself for leaving a now rampant and confident Liverpool. Nando would have had three hattricks by now if he had the chances that Liverpool has created so far this season.
