Boxing Day Premier League: Stoke v Liverpool
Sky Sports 1 7.45pm
Stoke play Scrooge
The famously vocal crowd at the Britannia haven’t seen their team lose at home in the league all season, and there’s no reason to expect that to change with the visit of Liverpool, who have just two wins in the away column this term and face the most miserly defence in the division.
The teams met in October at Anfield, a 0-0 draw in which the Reds managed just two shots on target. It’s a familiar pattern for Liverpool, both this season and against Stoke generally: two wins from nine Premier League games against the Potters, and winless in the past three – they’re unlikely to find their hosts charitable here.
