Liverpool traveled away to Brtiannia Stadium to play against Stoke City looking for their third consecutive win.

It was, however, not to be, as Jonathan Walters scored from the spot after Jamie Carragher pulled him down in the penalty box in the 21st minute. It was the only goal of the match, but it was enough for the Potters to chalk up a win against the Reds.

Although Liverpool pressured the home side frequently, they were unable to find the goal, ultimately recording their first loss of the season.
