Stoke vs Liverpool Prediction
Liverpool are the better side and will be favourites to win here. Stoke are in very poor form and will need to improve significantly in order to trouble Jurgen Klopp’s men.
However, injuries to key players and their defensive issues have made the Reds vulnerable and this could be a tricky outing for them. It should be a close contest but eventually the away side should be able to pick up the win.
