Liverpool vs Stoke City prediction

Stoke City arrive to Liverpool hoping to continue their positive run on their travels. Liverpool, on the other hand, want to put an end on their winless run and their home record against the Potters gives them realistic chances for taking all three points this time out.

Visit to Dortmund a big success

Even though everybody predicted an easy win for die Borussen in their clash against Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp’s charges secured an impressive share of spoils at Westfalenstadion this Thursday, keeping their dream of conquering the Europa League very much alive. Divock Origi fully justified Jurgen’s faith with a goal against Klopp’s former club, while Lovren and Sakho formed a rather solid wall in front of Mignolet. Even though Anfield outfit have been producing rather under-par displays in recent matches, the successful visit to Germany will certainly raise the morale of the players, who will look to bounce back to winning ways against Stoke. This should not present a difficult task, since Liverpool are still to taste the bitterness of defeat against the Potters at Anfield in Premier League matches. Roberto Firmino is back after his injury and, bearing in mind he has been rather efficient on home soil, he could pose a great threat if given a chance. Philippe Coutinho has been outstanding of late and he just might prove lethal for Mark Hughes’ side as ti was the case in the reverse fixture.

Joe Gomez and Danny Ings are out for the rest of the season due to injury. Jordan Rossiter and Christian Benteke are still in the recovery room, while Emre Can is serving his suspension. Jordan Henderson suffered a knee injury against Dortmund, so he will not be able to help his teammates.

The Potters rather successful on the road of late

Mark Hughes’ men have been rather impressive in the Premier League in recent matches, losing just one of their previous seven fixtures. However, in their clash against Swansea they could have easily ended up empty-handed, even though Bojan and Affelay secured a two-goal lead to the Potters (2-2). The fact is that Stoke have been producing far better performances on the road of recent, with two wins and a draw and six netted goals in the spell, which is why the fans hope they will be successful in the forthcoming clash against the Reds. However, Britannia Stadium outfit are yet to record their first triumph at Anfield in the Premiership. They scored a mere one goal during their previous fourteen visits to Liverpool in league matches, but if they repeat the display form the League Cup, the Potters could hope for a positive outcome.

Stoke City will be without the likes of Jonathan Walters (hamstring), Jack Butland (broken ankle), Glen Johnson (knee) and Marc Wilson (knee).

Quick Facts

Liverpool vs Stoke City betting tip

Stoke City will be under a lot of pressure at Anfield, bearing in mind their negative record against the Reds and the fact they managed to drop a two-goal lead against the Swans in the previous round. Liverpool seem encouraged with a positive outcome from Dortmund and I believe they will not have much trouble in emerging victorious against the Potters.
