Liverpool are having an impressive run since the festive period as they are unbeaten in the last nine matches played in all competitions. Brendan Rodgers has seen his side settle for a 1-1 draw against Chelsea in the first leg of the Capital One Cup semifinal at Anfield.

The Merseyside club defeated AFC Wimbledon in the third round of the FA Cup, where their skipper Steven Gerrard's brace helped Liverpool to seal a win. The former Swansea boss will be hoping his side can continue their unbeaten run when they take on the Championship side on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Bolton defeated Wigan Athletic to make it to the fourth round of the FA Cup. Neil Lennon recently secured the services of former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey as the striker is set to play against his former club on Sunday.

In the last 12 matches played in all competitions, Bolton have lost only one match, which came against Huddersfield Tow away from home.

What Managers Say

Brendan Rodgers: "The squad needs that time to evolve and work together. This squad has Premier League-winning capabilities. If we can get success in a cup competition this year it'll give us greater stimulus to stick together but you always need more quality."

Neil Lennon: "I'm not surprised how well Brendan has done. He was so methodical in his preparations and his training sessions were brilliant. I still use some of them now, but don't tell him as I don't know if he has the copyright on them!"
