Match Preview : Liverpool vs Stoke

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Liverpool left it late to beat Everton in the Merseyside Derby on Monday and will be high on confidence for the reception of Stoke on Boxing Day. Jurgen Klopp’s side are unbeaten in seven home league games this season and have scored an average of 2.6 goals in those matches.

Stoke will be kicking themselves after they let a 2-0 lead against the 10 men of Leicester slip to only come away with a point from their last match. The Potters are now winless in three matches, although they have only lost one of their last five on the road.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last four home league matches against Stoke and have kept a clean sheet in three of those matches. They should have no problems in dispatching Stoke on Boxing Day to keep pace with league leaders Chelsea. Naija and Bet
