Stoke City vs Liverpool: Premier League


Liverpool will travel to Stoke with the intention of closing the week with a victory after surrendering leads in their previous two fixtures over the past seven days. 

Draws away to Sevilla and at home to Chelsea - usually creditable results - were doused with disappointment after Jurgen Klopp's side took control in both fixtures before having to settle for a share in the points.

Liverpool head to Stoke on Wednesday evening as the Premier League top four race starts to heat up.

Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Anfield allowed Arsenal to jump into fourth spot in the table, with Jurgen Klopp's men now sitting sixth - 14 points behind league leaders Manchester City after just 13 games.

The Reds boast one of the most fearsome front lines in the top flight, but Klopp must improve a disappointing defence if they are to qualify for next season's Champions League - starting with a result against Mark Hughes' struggling Stoke.

Team news

Stoke City
Joel Matip is a doubt for the hosts with a thigh strain, though Adam Lallana should be fit as he battles a similar problem.

Nathaniel Clyne remains out with a long-term back problem.

Stoke have lost seven of their last eight games against Liverpool in the Premier League and are yet to win in the league this month.

They suffered a 2-1 defeat at Crystal Palace last time out following back-to-back 2-2 draws with Brighton and Leicester.

Mark Hughes will consider shaking up his selection against the visitors, whom he plans to "nullify."

Liverpool
Centre-back Dejan Lovren could feature on Saturday, while midfielder Emre Can will be in contention to start.
The duo both sat out the draw with Chelsea at Anfield due to minor problems.

Neither club have any suspension concerns, but former Reds midfielder Joe Allen is one caution away from a ban for the totting up of yellow cards.




Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino should start after being rested against the champions and with Klopp mulling over freshness as well as rhythm, there is likely to be other alterations.


Predicted line-ups

Stoke starting XI: Grant, Zouma, Shawcross, Wimmer, Jese, Fletcher, Allen, Pieters, Shaqiri, Crouch, Chuopo-Moting

Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet; Milner, Lovren, Klavan, Moreno; Wijnaldum, Henderson, Coutinho; Salah, Firmino, Mane
