Liverpool will be looking to bounce back from the disappointing 2-2 draw against Bournemouth in midweek when they face Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side trailed early on against the Cherries before goals from Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi looked set to give them their second home win in the space of four days.
However, Josh King netted a late equaliser for Eddie Howe’s side, that left the Reds in third and six points above fifth-placed Arsenal, although the Gunners do have two games in hand.
They face a Potters side this weekend that they have sometimes struggled against at the Britannia in recent seasons – they were beaten 6-1 there in 2015 – and goalkeeper Simon Mignolet posted on social media before the crucial clash.

Liverpool fans were quick to reply to the stopper via social media, with many pleading with the Belgian to be at his best in order to help the Reds take all three points back to Merseyside.
