Liverpool host Stoke City at Anfield on Sunday in the Premier League, as both teams attempt to aide their bids for European football next season.

Liverpool drew 1-1 with title-chasing Tottenham at Anfield last time out in the Premier League. The first half was goalless, but Philippe Coutinho struck first to give the Reds the lead. However, Spurs secured a vital draw with a strike from England international Harry Kane.

The Reds are now nine points behind fourth-place City with a game in-hand of the Citizens.

Philippe Coutinho has enjoyed a good campaign this season, scoring seven goals and producing six assists this season in the top-flight.

Stoke threw away a two goal lead to draw 2-2 with Premier League strugglers Swansea last time out. The Potters looked to be coasting to victory gaining a two goal lead through strikes from Ibrahim Afellay and Bojan Krkic.

However, the Welsh side levelled the scores through goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Alberto Paloschi to a vital point. Mark Hughes will be disappointed that his side lost after establishing such a comfortable lead. The Potters are now eighth position and seven points off fourth spot.

Stoke have won just two of the last ten meetings in all competitions, with the home side recording six wins in the process.

Team Selection And News

Liverpool are without young defender Joe Gomez and forward Danny Ings, who both have long-term injuries and are joined on the sidelines through injury by Brazilian central midfielder Lucas Leiva. German midfielder Emre Can will miss out through suspension.

Brazilian international Roberto Firmino is still struggling with a hamstring injury and is a doubt, as is Belgium striker Christian Benteke. Welsh midfielder Joe Allen could replace Can in midfield.

For Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland, defenders Mark Wilson and Glen Johnson are ruled out through injury as is versatile Republic of Ireland international Jonathan Walters. Centre-back Ryan Shawcross and attacking midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri have a chance featuring, but are still doubts.

Possible Liverpool Team Selection

Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Sakho, Moreno, Allen, Henderson, Milner, Lallana, Coutinho, Sturridge

Possible Stoke Team Selection

Haugaard, Bardsley, Cameron, Wollscheid, Pieters, Whelan, Imbula, Afellay, Bojan, Arnautovic, Joselu

Match Prediction

Stoke are never an easy opponent and Liverpool are just so inconsistent. However, I can see the home side winning this clash against the Potters, but maybe only by a narrow margin, as the Potters have also been unpredictable of late.
