Liverpool v Stoke

Postby Conner99 » Sun Aug 11, 2013 1:04 pm

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will start the season without the worries of European football ...his side only finished 7th last season and so it will be the Premier League he will be concentrating all his efforts on , of course the one problem he does have is the future of star striker Luis Suarez ...is he staying ..is he going ...

Liverpool face Stoke at Anfield in their opening game of the new season ..Suarez is as we all know banned from the first six games of the season after his much publicised biting episode on Chelsea`s Branislav Ivanovic . Liverpoool need a better start than last season when the lost 3-0 to West Brom ..will Brendan Rodgers be smiling or frowning .



Stoke finished last season in 13th place which was perhaps lower than manager Tonly Pulis had expected , a mid table position yet again , he left the club by mutual consent in may and was soon replaced by Welshman Mark Hughes who signed a 3 year contract on 30 may 2013 .

Stoke have been in the Premier League for a number of years now and it will be a tough task facing Mark Hughes , he knows only too well the problem facing clubs fighting to stay in the Premier League ..having been sacked by QPR only six months ago Hughes said ..""If I am honest, we all tried to run there before we could walk,"At Stoke it's about steady progress.

Well a tough first match for Mark Hughes ...can he cause an upset .?

Other than a couple of new defenders I don't think Mark Hughes has really signed any other players for Stoke this summer.

Liverpool should be able to get off to a good start even without Suarez who is banned for the first 6 matches of the season.

Liverpool 1-0 Stoke.

Daniel Sturridge with the first goal of the new season!

A cracker that beat Begovic (who has been brilliant all game)

Begovic has been very good so far but i am impressed with the movement and link up play of our forward line..

Only 45mins gone though....

Nervy there at the end, but Mignolet channeling his inner Dudek with a huge penalty save!

Mignolet was showing his nerves for most of the game, which is funny as he said he never gets nervous but he dug deep to keep the 3 points. Brilliant save. On his debut too! 12 points for my fantasy team :lol:

Very impressed with Iago Aspas and Sturridge who linked up like they've been playing together for years.
Hopefully we see both of them involved in eachothers goals.

Stoke weren't too bad defensively with Begovic in goal but they left it too late to threaten our goal.

So pleased to get off to a win. Hopefully we can chain a few similar results and stay high up the table for aslong as possible.

Players that stuck out for me are Begovic, Mignolet, Sturridge, Iago Aspas and Lucas.
