Premier Preview: Liverpool vs. Stoke City
Liverpool vs. Stoke City Anfield Liverpool's up and down start to the season welcomes a host of familiar faces to Anfield this Sunday afternoon as Stoke City visit Merseyside in the Premier League. Three successive away wins in all competitions, culminating in last weekend's thumping of Norwich City, seemed to suggest Brendan Rodgers and his team had finally got their season off and running. However, on Thursday night the results were superseded by a frustrating, if entertaining, 3-2 defeat to Udinese in the Europa League. The reverse means the Reds have now lost three on the bounce at Anfield and Rodgers will want to put that right against the Potters. Stoke have made a solid start to their league campaign, sitting 12th on seven points - two places and two points better off than the hosts. Tony Pulis' squad include ex-Reds Peter Crouch, Michael Owen, Jermaine Pennant and Charlie Adam.
