Premier League—Britannia Stadium, Stoke

Stoke City 3-5 Liverpool

Scorers: Cissokho (4'), Suarez (33', 73'), Crouch (41'), Adam (45'), Gerrard (p) (51'), Walters (84') Sturridge (88')

 

Liverpool escaped the Britannia Stadium with a thrilling 5-3 victory over bogey side Stoke City.

The Reds took a 2-0 lead in the first half against the run of play, but Peter Crouch and Charlie Adam—two former Liverpool men—levelled matters before the break.

A controversial penalty allowed Steven Gerrard the chance to give his team the lead again and Luis Suarez made it four, but just as things were beginning to look comfortable the Potters came back.

Marko Arnautovic set up Jonathan Walters for a third, but Daniel Sturridge sealed it with a fifth late on. Incredible game of football.
