Stoke (4-2-3-1) Butland; Cameron, Wilson, Shawcross, Pieters; Whelan, N’Zonzi; Walters, Adam, Arnautovic; Crouch
Asmir Begovic and Thomas Soresen are out, so Jack Butland is in. Unfortunately, for the Potters, in-form, on-loan winger Ousamma Assaidi won’t be allowed to play against his parent club.
Liverpool (4-2-3-1) Mignolet; Johnson, Toure, Skrtel, Cissokho; Lucas, Gerrard, Henderson; Coutinho, Sterling; Suarez.
Daniel Sturridge is back in the fold for the away team but it’s unlikely he’ll be thrown into the mixer from the off. Steven Gerrard will make a return though, as Liverpool battle with injuries yo Danny Agger, Jon Flanagan, Joe Allen and Jose Enrique.

Luis Suarez. Take a bow.
Who else could it be? December’s Player of the Month doesn’t look like stopping any time soon…
Stoke have won three and lost none of their five previous Barclays Premier League home meetings with Liverpool (D2), winning the last three in a row.
Liverpool have only lost four consecutive Barclays Premier League away games at four different clubs before: Arsenal, Chelsea, Man Utd (twice) and Tottenham (twice).
