Result: Liverpool 0 – 0 Stoke City
Where: Anfield – Liverpool
|Liverpool – 0||Stoke City – 0|
Another home match without a win for Liverpool as their poor start to the season continues. I really thought they had turned the corner, particularly with their last 2 Premier League matches. They outplayed Manchester United and ran rampant against Norwich.
I did know that Stoke would put up a good fight and most likely sit back and defend while attempting to counter-attack and grab a goal. This did seem to be their tactic and both teams came close. Stoke frustrated Liverpool with their aggressiveness and ended the match with 6 yellow cards which will certainly result in a fine from the FA for getting too many yellows.
In the end Liverpool did not do enough to break down a solid Stoke defense. Another draw means that Stoke are 12th with 8 points while Liverpool sit at 14th with 6 points.
