Liverpool and Stoke draw a blank

Stoke manager Tony PulisLiverpool and Stoke played out a 0-0 draw at Anfield on Sunday.

Neither side could break the deadlock, with the visitors putting in a stern defensive display to deny Brendan Rodgers’ men.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis criticised Reds forward Luis Suarez after the game for what he perceived as a dive by the Uruguayan international in an attempt to win a penalty.

“You have got Suarez falling over in the box second half which was really, really disappointing,” Pulis told Sky Sports.

“I think that should be highlighted, as I have said before.”

However, the Potters’ trainer did praise Glen Johnson for his attitude and reaction to a Jonathan Walters challenge.

“There was a challenge in the first half in front of us, Jon Walters and Glen Johnson both went up for a header, it was a proper old-fashioned challenge.

“Glen Johnson did absolutely fantastic, just bounced back up on got with the game, it was a proper, proper challenge.

“I went over to him and said ‘well done, brilliant’ – not only did he play exceptionally well but his behaviour was fabulous,” Pulis concluded.

The result leaves Liverpool with one solitary win this season, down in 14th place.
