Liverpool defeated Bolton to end a sequence of three home draws and reclaim top spot in the Premier League.

Highlights

The Reds took the lead through Albert Riera, who volleyed home beyond the near post direct from a corner.

Robbie Keane collected a Steven Gerrard pass and finished with his left foot to extend the home team’s lead.

Keane then slotted home from eight yards to finish a sharp break that involved Xabi Alonso and Yossi Benayoun to take his team back above Chelsea.

Bolton had won three of their last four away fixtures but were very much second best against a team who had seen Luiz Felipe Scolari’s outfit move above them with victory over West Brom earlier on Boxing Day.
