Stoke v Liverpool Preview – Key Battles


Stoke v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

The highs from the Merseyside derby victory were quickly erased as Liverpool were brought back down to earth after a disappointing 2-2 draw against Bournemouth at Anfield. But, there is no time to dwell on that result as the Reds face a trip to the Bet365 Stadium to face Stoke City.

Since Stoke got promoted in the 2008-09 season, the Reds have generally found it to be a banana skin encounter, exemplified the most by the humbling 6-1 defeat on the last day of the 2014-15 season, in Steven Gerrard’s last game for the club.

Last season, we went to Stoke on the opening day of the season, and a Philippe Coutinho worldie was enough for a 1-0 win. Earlier this season, the reverse fixture at Anfield saw the Reds run out 4-1 winners, after John Walters had opened the scoring for the Potters.

Stoke are without a win in four games, and they haven’t won in more than a month now. With the Reds’ tendency to be a Robin Hood, Stoke will definitely fancy their chances to break that wretched run and absolutely make sure of their Premier League status.

Here are some key battles to look forward to.
