Liverpool v Stoke Premier League Preview, 28th April 12.30pm
Liverpool blew a two-goal lead against bottom side West Brom on the weekend and had to settle for a frustrating point. At this stage, the most likely outcome is now the third-place finish in the league. As for Stoke they collected a point against Burnley on the weekend, but are four points clear of safety now having played a game more than those just outside of the relegation zone.
Liverpool v Stoke Betting Odds*
Liverpool 2/7, Draw 9/2, Stoke 17/2* (Betting Odds taken at 6:25 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018)
Liverpool News and Form
Naturally, the focus of the Champions League is coming into play in results in the Premier League for Liverpool. The Reds have their top four finish and so can afford to switch off in the top flight in order to push for glory on the European front. Liverpool are W1 D2 in their last three and they are without defeat in their last five league games. They had a good 2-0 lead at the Hawthorns on the weekend before switching off and conceding two goals in the final ten minutes to end in a 2-2 tie. Liverpool are a four-match winning streak at home for the league season and this is their penultimate league home game for the term. The Reds haven’t conceded in any of their last three home games and Liverpool to win to nil at bet365 is at 6/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:22 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018). Liverpool have averaged almost 2.5 goals per home game this season and they have shipped just the 10 goals in 17 games at Anfield in the top flight. They have netted at least two goals in each of their last eight at Anfield and the Stoke defence isn’t likely to trip them up really. A Liverpool 2-0 correct score is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:22 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018) and will have some appeal.
Stoke News and Form
The position for the Potters looks pretty dodgy right now. They are four points clear of safety and without a win in a while. They are winless in their last eleven league games now after drawing 1-1 with Burnley on the weekend at home. Once they are through this Liverpool test they have to face Crystal Palace and Swansea in their last two games. But then if this weekend doesn’t go well for them they could be relegated before that. Stoke are without a win in their last dozen games on the road but they have drawn three of their last four. But the Potters have lost each of their away games this season against the other sides currently sat in the top seven so that doesn’t bode well for them. Stoke have won just once away all season and it really is hard seeing them make an impact in this one. Both teams not to score at bet365 is at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:22 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018) and the Potters have failed to score in two of their last three on the road. Overall this season they have only managed 13 away goals while they have conceded at over two goals per game on average.
Liverpool v Stoke Head to Head
Liverpool brushed Stoke aside with a 3-0 win at the Bet365 Stadium earlier this season which leaves them with a four-match Premier League winning streak against the potters. The Reds have won their last two home league games against them by a 4-1 scoreline and they are on a four-match winning streak at home and they are unbeaten in their nine previous Premier League home (W7 D2). Each of the last four meetings have ended above 2.5 goals.
Who will win – Liverpool v Stoke Predictions
Even though they have the distractions of the Champions League, the Reds should be able to get three points against Stoke. The Potters are battling, but without the end rewards that they need and their defence is unlikely to hold out at Anfield.
