Stoke City 1-2 Liverpool – April 2017
[ English Premier League 2017 Match ]
44′ 1 – 0 Jonathan Walters scores for Stoke City as they took the lead at bet365 stadium just before the halftime.
70′ 1 – 1 Philippe Coutinho made it 1-1 on the day midway through second half breaking Stoke’s resilience.
72′ 1 – 2 Roberto Firmino was on target minutes later to complete the turnaround.
Last time these two teams meet was back in April 2016 when Liverpool ran out comfortable 4-1 winners thanks to goals from Moreno, Sturridge and Origi brace. Klopp will be hoping for a similar outing come tuesday evening.
Possible Starting Lineups: Mark Hughes also has some selection headech ahead of the big game with Xherdan Shaqiri likely to be given the start while Marko Arnautovic (Suspended), Ibrahim Afellay (Injury), Geoff Cameron, P.Bardsley and Butland are still out of the squad. Which means we might see the similar starting lineup against Liverpool which took the field against Leicester City.
Match Predictions: Reds look such a well drilled unit at the moment and I expect them to get all three points against Stoke City who are on bare bones when it comes to suspensions and injuries. Only concern Liverpool might have is their unpredictable form where out of nowhere they dropp points in games like this.
