Steven Gerrard gets himself some guaranteed headlines for tomorrows papers after he misses a penalty. Prior to that he’d had a goal disallowed for offside. He later hits the post but the final score – 2-2 – was just not good enough for Liverpool.
Liverpool’s performance was good, they created numerous chances, but just could not convert enough of them.
Liverpool exile El Hadji Diouff scored the winner for Bolton, meaning Liverpool drop into sixth place, one point behind the now fifth-placed Bolton, and three points behind fourth-placed Everton – who now have a game in hand.
