Liverpool return to action in the Premier League with a trip to Stoke City on Saturday afternoon. Here, club statistician Ged Rea takes us through a selection of the best pre-game facts and figures…
The teams have met on 17 occasions in the Premier League, with the Reds winning eight times, the Potters four and five games ending in a draw.
Home and away, Liverpool have lost only five of the last 33 meetings.
Last season, the Reds Liverpool defeated Stoke twice in the Potteries – both by a 1-0 scoreline. Philippe Coutinho won the league game on the opening weekend of the campaign, while Jordon Ibe netted the only goal in a League Cup semi-final first-leg victory.
