    • 90+4' The full-time whistle goes at the Reebok, and Liverpool have grabbed all three points courtesy of Maxi Rodriguez's 86th-minute winner! Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+3' Holden gets down the right once more, and the midfielder has been a bright spark today, but can't get a cross to a white shirt.
    • 90+2' Reina again is on hand to claim a high ball in the Liverpool box, and the Spaniard is secure.
    • 90+1' Lucas and Maxi are back defending for their side as Steinsson launches in a long throw in.
    • 90' Four minutes will be added at the end of this second half, and Bolton are pressing.
    • 89' Reina is out to claim a loose ball in the Liverpool box, and that is fine goalkeeping with Rodrigo lurking ominously!
    • 88' The travelling supporters are in full voice now as their side look set for a third league win.
    • 87' Liverpool look to consolidate their strike with a good spell of possession in midfield.
    • 86' GOAL!!!!! RODRIGUEZ GRABS THE OPENER! Torres rolls an audacious backheel into the path of the onrushing Rodriguez, who toe-pokes the ball beyond the diving Jaaskelainen - is that the winner?!
    • 85' Torres should find Gerrard as the Liverpool skipper races beyond Knight, but the striker cannot pick him out with a relatively simple through ball!
    • 84' Cahill goes down with cramp, but he gets to his feet gingerly and will continue to play on.
    • 83' Ngog drifts over a long ball towards Torres, but Cahill makes a stunning challenge to slide in and get the ball.
    • 82' Elmander's evening is brought to an abrupt end, and Ivan Klasnic is introduced for a late run out.
    • 81' It's a poor delivery from Gerrard, and Kyrgiakos cannot make contact with it at the back post.
    • 80' Cahill is penalised for holding Ngog while winning a header in the Bolton half, and this gives Gerrard a chance to whip one over...
    • 79' Rodriguez races clear, but Meireles misplaces a very shoddy pass straight to the keeper.
    • 78' Jaaskelainen is swiftly off his line to intervene as Ngog races on to try to meet Torres's through ball.
    • 77' Robinson drifts over another testing delivery from the left, and Liverpool are being pegged back now.
    • 76' What a chance! Holden ghosts in at the back post, but inexplicably fails to make any contact on the ball from just five yards out - what a delivery from Taylor!
    • 75' Skrtel is booked for a rash challenge on Davies, and this could be dangerous if Taylor whips in a beauty...
    • 74' Rodrigo Moreno comes on to replace Lee for Bolton, and this is an intriguing move.
    • 73' Elmander drives a low shot towards the far post, but Reina makes a fine save to tip the ball behind for a corner!
    • 72' That was a sublime attempt from Maxi, and just the kind of touch which could clinch this match.
    • 71' What an effort from Rodriguez! Gerrard dinks a delightful delivery to the back post where Torres heads the ball back to Rodriguez, but the Argentine's stunning overhead kick dips narrowly over the crossbar!
    • 70' Russ says: "Joe Cole needs to come off, which surprises me beacuse I did not realise he was on the pitch." That is entirely fair!
    • 69' Taylor and Elmander combine to good effect, but Skrtel intercepts to thwart Holden.
    • 68' Holden drifts a deep delivery to the back post from the resulting set piece, but Kyrgiakos is on hand to head out for a throw in.
    • 67' Davies is decked by Kyrgiakos on halfway, and the Bolton striker applauds the referee.
    • 66' Robinson gets down the left for Bolton and whips over a cross, but that is way too deep for Elmander.
    • 65' Gerrard whips over a testing delivery which Kyrgiakos meets, but heads wide of the near post!
    • 64' The possession is equally split now in this second half, and neither side looks like scoring thus far.
    • 63' Gerrard runs straight into Knight, who looks pretty bewildered as the Liverpool skipper is awarded a free kick.
    • 62' Torres fires a low drive straight at Jaaskelainen, and that was a decent effort from range.
    • 61' David Ngog is coming on to replace Cole, and that is an attacking move by Hodgson, who employs two strikers.
    • 60' Cole is down clutching his left hamstring, and this looks to be very bad news for Liverpool...
    • 59' Robinson does well to deflect a fierce strike from range by Gerrard up in the air, and Jaaskelainen claims the high ball.
    • 58' Gerrard leads a rare attacking move by the visitors, but Torres does not manage to latch on to his through ball.
    • 57' Hodgson looks on anxiously as his side struggle to seize control of this second half.
    • 56' Lucas is clattered from behind by Muamba, and that leaves the Brazilian on the floor in a crumpled heap.
    • 55' There is a comical moment as a long ball from Robinson runs out of play and knock the flag from the linesman's (sorry, assistant referee's) grasp!
    • 54' Davies is again penalised for a robust aerial challenge which floors Kyrgiakos, but that was soft.
    • 53' Bolton are dominating the play in this second half, and the hosts are buoyed by this start.
    • 52' Holden swivels and runs at Meireles, who stands up and makes an impeccable challenge.
    • 51' Davies takes a heavy tumble in the Liverpool box as he looks to meet Steinsson's long ball.
    • 50' Lee races down the left at pace, and that is another sterling effort from the midfielder, whose cross is too deep.
    • 49' Robinson hurls a long throw in down the line, but Elmander loses out to Skrtel, who comes across with a timely intervention.
    • 47' Taylor is booked for a mistimed challenge on Gerrard, and he was never going to get away with that!
    • 46' The second half is underway at the Reebok, and Taylor continues to look bright as he races down the left.
    • 45+1' The half-time whistle goes at the Reebok as Kyrgiakos is offside from Gerrard's free kick, and it is goalless between Bolton and Liverpool.
    • 45' There will be just one minute added at the end of this first half as Cahill fouls Torres.
    • 44' Bolton continue to pile on the pressure at the end of this first half, and the hosts have been impressive.
    • 43' Davies is adjudged to have fouled Carragher as he challenges with the defender in the air, and that was fair.
    • 42' Rodriguez holds the ball up on the edge of the box, but Gerrard blasts his shot wide!
    • 41' There is a huge appeal for a penalty as Taylor's delivery is blocked by Carragher's hand, but the referee does not spot it - you see those given!

    • 38' STAT: Eight of the Reds’ nine Premier League goals this season have come in the second half.
    • 37' Liverpool are shading the possession 53-47 in this first half, but it is very tight in midfield.
    • 36' The ball sits up nicely for Muamba 30 yards out, but the midfielder fires over the bar wildly.
    • 35' Meireles is full of energy and effort in midfield, but Liverpool are not creating much.
    • 34' Bolton stroke the ball around at the back, and the hosts are looking very confident indeed.
    • 33' STAT: Liverpool have not scored a league goal that wasn’t either scored or assisted by Gerrard or Torres since the opening day of the season.
    • 32' Cole sees more of the ball down the left all of a sudden, and Liverpool build through Konchesky.
    • 31' Torres drifts outwide on the right, but Robinson marshalls him effectively and clears.
    • 30' Taylor hacks down Carragher, and the midfielder is pulled up on that one as the game becomes pretty scrappy.
    • 29' Hodgson looks typically pensive on the touchline, while Coyle berates his back four.
    • 28' Torres is again caught in an offside position as he races clear but cannot touch the ball.
    • 27' Gerrard launches a long ball out to Torres, but the forward is caught offside as he mistimes his run.
    • 26' Cole finds Konchesky outwide on the left, but Muamba gets in with a strong challenge.

    • 24' Reina clears upfield as Liverpool remain under the cosh in this first half. Bolton look very positive.

    • 22' What a shot! Holden unleashes a fierce strike from range which dips and forces Reina into a smart stop!
    • 21' Davies gets down the left before drilling a low cross into the six-yard box, but Elmander cannot latch on to them.
    • 20' Lee is tripped by Konchesky out on the Liverpool left, and the full back is promptly booked.
    • 19' Konchesky picks out Torres, but the striker does not challenge sufficiently for the ball and Cahill clears.
    • 18' Kyrgiakos fouls Davies with a jab in the back, and this could be dangerous with Taylor over the ball.
    • 17' That's very poor! Cole is afforded tons of space down the left, but his cross is way too deep for Torres in the box.
    • 16' Knight leaps high to head away as Cole dinks over a delivery into the box.

    • 13' Holden retrieves the ball for Bolton, but his long ball to Davies is headed away by Carragher.

    • 5' Lee surges down the right at pace, and Bolton have started very brightly.
    • 4' Stuart Holden crunches into Lucas with a sturdy challenge, and that is just what Bolton are looking for.
    • 3' Konchesky picks out Cole with a delightful diagonal pass, and the midfielder does well to win a corner.
    • 2' Coyle is already incredibly animated on the touchline as he urges his players forward.
    • 1' The first half is underway at the Reebok, and Bolton kick us off with Steinsson immediately charging down the right.
