Liverpool can overcome Bolton at the second time of asking, with Daniel Sturridge set to face former club

Daniel Sturridge was previously on the books at Manchester City and Chelsea, although the England forward also had a loan spell at Bolton Wanderers and it proved a successful one.

Eight goals in twelve games were scored for the Trotters and he came off the bench on Saturday to score against West Ham and illustrate why Liverpool have been lacking a cutting edge for most of the campaign.

Even so, the Reds have been back to their attacking and fluent best in recent weeks and they will surely land victory on Wednesday night, with Brendan Rodgers likely to field a strong team for this clash.

It should be remembered that Liverpool won a tricky Capital One Cup tie away to Bournemouth a few weeks ago and Bolton will certainly not be defending as deeply in front of their own fans as they did at Anfield when drawing 0-0.

Bet365 offer 4/7 about an away win although the 7/4 about Liverpool winning to nil makes plenty of appeal considering that the Reds defence is starting to churn out clean sheets.

Emre Can is lining up as part of a back three with Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho, with Chelsea the only team to score past Simon Mignolet in the last six matches.

Bolton are an 11/2 chance with bet365 to claim a surprise victory and Neil Lennon has certainly given the team a much-needed shot in the arm this season, although they appear to be facing Liverpool at the wrong time.

Nineteen-year-old Zach Clough has three goals in two games and Lennon might be tempted to give the youngster a chance to make a name for himself, although Adam Le Fondre is cup-tied and Emile Heskey has a hamstring problem.
