BRUCEY BONUS; BARCLAYS PREMIER LEAGUE FAR POST LIVERPOOL v WIGAN ATHLETIC, IN BITS TODAY 3PM.

FOLLOWING up an enthralling comeback against a Manchester side has already proved an obstacle in Liverpool's attempts to prove their genuine title credentials this season.

The 2-1 win over United last month was followed by a goalless draw with Stoke - and if Liverpool are to avoid similar frustration in building on their 3-2 win at City a fortnight ago then they have to face one of their most baffling bogeymen - and out his nose well and truly out of joint.

Steve Bruce. And that inability to beat him at Anfield.

He brings his Wigan side to Anfield today after drawing four and losing just one of his six previous Premier League games at the ground.

His only previous visit with Wigan was in January's 1-1 draw.

And since his Birmingham side recorded a 1-0 victory four years ago, only Manchester United and Chelsea have beaten Liverpool at home in the league.
