Liverpool haven’t won at the Reebok Stadium for three heavily limping years and Bolton Wanderers striker Samuel El Hadji Diouf says that the Reds could fail again when they visit the Reebok this weekend in the Premiership.
El Hadji Diouf was formerly at Liverpool and was sold by Rafael Benitez and obviously the Senegalese international striker is eager to make a point or two against his former club. He hails Bolton’s record against one of the biggest teams in Europe and says:
We have done very well against Liverpool over the years as we have always stuck to playing the football which suits us.
We have played our football and have always believed in ourselves. We need to do that again.
Liverpool are a good team with good players, but if we play our football then we can beat them like we do every season.
Every game is a big game for us now, not just because we’re playing Liverpool or Man United. We need to win football games and be fantastic.
But maybe Liverpool will break their Reebok jinx. After all, for the last seasons Sam Allardyce was in charge and Bolton were much better off then than they are now with Gary Megson in charge and the team battling to avoid the drop. So in all probabilities, Liverpool should be favourites for this match.
