Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to get another victory with Liverpool when they take on Stoke city during the weekend. This has been one of the favourite matches for Liverpool over the years.
They have been undefeated in this fixture for the last 49 years, which is the longest unbeaten record standing in the Premier league. Liverpool come into the match on the back of the 3-2 defeat suffered at the hands of the Italian club Udinese in the Europa league. Despite this, the Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said that he is confident that the team will be able to build on the 5-2 win over Norwich achieved last weekend.
This win propelled Liverpool past the relegation zone and closer to the top 10 of the table. The Liverpool manager has said that he is looking to get Liverpool back into the top four as soon as possible. Still, bookmakers do not seem to be convinced that Liverpool will be able to beat Stoke city at Anfield. As a result, a draw is the most favoured a result that 10/3, while odds of Stoke city beating them are 7/1. Liverpool are 8/15 to get the second win of the season on the way.
The 1-0 scoreline is also the most favoured by the bookmakers due to the fact that Liverpool have been finding it difficult to finish off the chances that they create. Even though Liverpool have had a lot of chances in the last few seasons, they have struck the post on a number of occasions, while they have also not been clinical enough. The star striker Luis Suarez, though, will be coming into the match on the back of a new phone confidence following the hat-trick he scored against Norwich city last weekend, which was his second for Liverpool.
