Last year, Stoke beat Liverpool for the first time in 20 years. They triumphed with a 2-0 victory in November. Liverpool returned the favor the following February with a 2-0 victory of their own.
Liverpool will now look to turn that victory into another streak when these two meet on September 10th at 10 a.m. EST.
Liverpool will be favored to do just that. They are to talented for this Stoke squad to contend with. Liverpool has not last in their last five matches—a stretch that includes two EPL victories and a draw.
Last time out on the pitch, Liverpool took down Bolton 3-1. They also have an impressive EPL victory in that stretch with 2-0 victory over Arsenal.
Stoke City fans will have a lot to look forward to in this match, though. It will be the debut of striker Peter Crouch, who was recently purchased from Tottenham.
Crouch's goal scoring ability is sorely needed in Stoke's ranks. His potential to add firepower to Stoke will be instantly tested as he goes up against a very strong Liverpool defense.
Stoke will also be joined by Cameron Jerome for this match. Jerome was recently acquired from Birmingham.
