Stoke City vs Liverpool Preview

Stoke City vs Liverpool

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – bet365 Stadium

Date: 29th November 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Stoke City proved once again that they are not able to preserve a lead and that their defence needs restructuring when they threw away their lead to lose at bottom of the table Crystal Palace over the weekend.

They took the lead via Xherdan Shakiri in that game but were powerless to stop Mamadou Sakho from helping the Eagles to their second win.

That loss means they now have two draws and a win from their last four games.

They have not been too impressive at home this season either as they have two wins, two losses and two draws in Six games at the bet365 Stadium and they welcome a Liverpool side who are the third highest scorers in the division this season.

Liverpool were unlucky not to win their last game against Chelsea as a Willian wonder goal inside the last five minutes meant they shared the Spoils with the Blues.

That was their second consecutive draw from a winning position and Jurgen Klopp will ask his players to defend better particularly when they are in front.

The Reds have not kept a clean sheet away from home in the Premier League this season, despite visiting West Ham, Newcastle and Watford.

They have conceded the highest amount of goals by an away team this season (16) although they have also netted 12 times in their travels.

They have the league’s top scorer in Mohammed Salah and the Egyptian will be looking to score again here.
