Liverpool look to continue their unbeaten home record in the Premier League as they take on relegation threatened Stoke City.
Champions League semi-finalists Liverpool are in good form, unbeaten in their last six and winning four of those. Stoke have ended their losing streak by drawing their last two, but are still four points from safety.
Newly crowned PFA Player of the Year Mo Salah is in great form, scoring five in his last six, and is amongst the favourites to open the scoring. For Stoke, goals have been hard to come by this season and are one of the league’s lowest scorers.
Stoke have the worst away record this campaign, winning just once away from home. They take on a side who have won 11 of their 17 games at home, conceding just 10 goals in that time.
Previous Liverpool v Stoke match stats show us that Liverpool have had the better of these meetings in recent years, winning nine of the last eleven meetings in all competitions.
