Stoke – Liverpool – And for the very end of the 14th English Premier League, we still have the 15th Stoke and 6th Liverpool duel, which currently has a big 10-point advantage. In addition, the Reds are also in a series of three wins and a single row, while the Stoke team after two tied strings in the last round defeated at the last Crystal Palace. It should also be noted here that the Reds celebrated in the last six clashes with Stoke.
Of course not all of these data goes to the footballers of Stoke before the next duel, but we all know that this team can already be very uncomfortable in the field, especially when playing against the most famous English teams. However, their current form is not something of a particular promise, so after the last series of two rhymes and one defeat they came to only three points difference from the drop zone.
However, here we have to point out that Hughes coaches in the last three games scored even five goals, while on the other hand they received six, which only tells us that now against the traditionally offensive-oriented Reds we can also expect a completely open and interesting match. As for the problem with absenteeism, Butland, the defenders Johnson and Cameron, and the Irish midfielder, are still on the list of injured players.
For Liverpool guests, we have already stated in the introduction that this duel with Stoke is expected after the first three wins and a single row, which was achieved just in the last round in a domestic match with the current Chelsea champion. Otherwise, coach Klopp was absolutely surprised by the composition he sent to the field because he had left several standard beginners on the bench, such as Mane, Firmin and Wijnaldum, as well as the newly recovered Lallan.
Of course one of the reasons for such a decision was the recent appearance of the Reds in the Champions League, where they had to play at Sevilla 3: 3, after having dropped the lead in as many as 3: 0 in the second half. However, that point of the Reds still left very good chances of winning the placement in the finals, because it is something that is enough for me to go home in Moscow with Spartak Moscow. Let’s say there are only injured defenders Clyne and Lovren and the midfielder Can.
