Stoke City vs. Liverpool Preview: Liverpool’s Title Race Continues With Sturridge’s Return

Updated: January 7, 2014

Daniel Sturridge’s return proved to be a potent answer to Liverpool’s woes. The online betting  favorite’s silverware campaign has been partially halted due to the injury issues they confront. But with Sturridge back on the pitch, it looks like Brendan Rodger’s title race and transfer issues were resolved in an instant.


Match Date: 12 January 2014 (local time)
Venue: Brittania Stadium
Team Form

Stoke City

Can Stoke City continue their winning streak?

Mark Hughes and his men were successful in their FA Cup run, but doubts loom on whether they can make an impression in the Premier League.


The Potter’s are in a struggling form. Two of their defeats in their last six (6) encounters include a 5-1 thrashing from Newcastle United and a clean sheet from Tottenham, where they conceded three (3) goals.


The scenario portrayed by those numbers is not very impressive. However, they can fully capitalized on their home court advantage. Seven (7) of their recent home matches saw them undefeated and perhaps this might bring a little boost to their confidence.



Despite conceding at least two (2) goals during their last six (6) away matches, Liverpool is positive that they will bounce back in this season’s title race.


Just recently, striker Daniel Sturridge got the nod for participating into an exciting pitch action. This was after being sidelined last November due to an ankle problem. With injury issues trying to put the club out of the limelight, Sturridge’s return spells good news.


Currently, Liverpool only needs two (2) victories to level with Arsenal and going against the Potters can be a good one.


Football betting tip:  Liverpool

With Sturridge back on the pitch and Luis Suarez’s unstoppable scoring antic, the upcoming match definitely, favors Liverpool.
