Win over Bolton puts Reds third

Sami Hyypia of Liverpool scores the opening goal

Liverpool have moved up to third place in the table after beating Bolton 4-0 at Anfield.

Captain Steven Gerrard created both first-half goals, for Sami Hyppia and then Fernando Torres.

Gerrard scored the third goal himself from a second-half penalty after Abdoulaye Meite fouled Peter Crouch and Ryan Babel knocked in the fourth.

Later Sebastian Larsson scored one of the goals of the season as Birmingham beat Tottenham 3-2.
