Confirmed: Liverpool and Stoke City line-ups

Anfield Pitch

Here is how Liverpool and Stoke City will line up this weekend:

Liverpool welcome Stoke City to Anfield today for their latest Premier League encounter.

The Reds are currently ninth in the table with 45 points from 30 matches and their games in hand mean they still have a chance of qualifying for European competition again next season.

As for Stoke, they are one place and two points ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s side although they have played two games more.

That said, victory for the Potters this afternoon will change things and Mark Hughes certainly has the players at his disposal to secure another famous victory.

However it is worth noting that Stoke do not have a good record at Anfield, winning just three times in 60 attempts, with none of those triumphs coming in the top flight.

But with Klopp struggling to get his side playing consistently at home in the league so far, there is certainly the prospect of a shock on the cards.

In short, expect an entertaining match that could go either way…
