Liverpool travel to the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday evening to take on Stoke City in their latest Premier League clash, and Jurgen Klopp's side will be hoping to build on their 1-1 draw with reigning champions Chelsea last time out.

Liverpool are currently sixth in the table with 23 points from 13 matches and, with only three points separating the Reds from third-placed Chelsea, there is clearly all to play for over the next few months.

In early team news Liverpool cannot call on long-term absentee Nathaniel Clyne while Dejan Lovren is a minor doubt with a knock but is rated at 75 per cent to be ready if called upon.

As for Stoke, they are without Jack Butland and Geoff Cameron but defender Glen Johnson should recover from illness in time for this clash.

Stoke are 15th as things stand, just three points clear of the drop zone and, while there is still plenty of football to be played, their manager Mark Hughes will want to get more points on the board as soon as possible.

Here is how we expect Liverpool to line up against the Potters on Wednesday evening:
