Our Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping to extend their unbeaten Premier League on a cold rainy Wednesday night in Stoke.
Since the humiliating 4-1 defeat to Spurs, Liverpool have gone 6 games without a loss in all competitions although our regulars say their defensive weakness still remains, which was highlighted in the Champions League draw against Sevilla.
The Reds currently sit in 6th and two points off fourth place, so a win in the midweek game would thrust them into the Champions League, spots if other results go their way. As you can imagine, the sight of Klopp’s men back in the top four would appease some of our local Kopites indeed.
Our barman thinks that Reds boss Klopp will look to try and gain a little momentum going into the busy festive period and, with him also able to choose from a 99% fully fit squad, he’s got options.
Having that said, our landlord takes a look at a starting eleven that will blow Mark Hughes’ Stoke City side away.
