Liverpool vs Stoke City by Sureseye

Liverpool
VS
Stoke-City
Liverpool will be without Suarez for this match, author of 23 out of 71 goals (32.4%) scored by Liverpool last season, carrying over last season's suspension. Striker Luis Alberto, Defender Kolo Toure, Midfielder Iago Aspas, Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet are new team's signings and it is expected the Reds get stronger than they were last season when they disappointedly finishing behind Everton on the table.

 

Stoke's team still largely comprises those that formed their framework last season. They've bought defenders Eric Pieters and Marc Muniesa to further stout the defence lines, and with Huth and Showcross marshalling the defence lines, Mark Hughes must especially start the season on a careful note; the memory of a 5-0 in league opener when he managed QPR last season should still linger. Besides, Stokes have been known to start the last three season in a low-scoring affair. Last season against Reading in their opener ended 1-1 as Adam Federeci's mistake behind Stoke's goal got Reading ahead till 10 minutes before Stoke equalized.

 

Last season, Liverpool finished with 10/19 clean sheets at home, registering Under 2.5 in 47.4% matches. Stoke were the second lowest away scorers in the League, registering Under 2.5 in 73.7% matches. Both defence have proved effective in pre-season matches and I expect a low-scoring game today!
