Liverpool vs Stoke City

Liverpool vs Stoke City – Liverpool host Stoke City at the Anfield on Boxing Day as they aim to close the gap on English Premier League leaders Chelsea.

Liverpool are second in league standings with thirty seven points, trailing Antonio Conte’s side by six points. Although losses to AFC Bournemouth and a draw at West Ham pegged back Liverpool’s titular chances, Jurgen Klopp’s men are the favorites among all the other contenders who could pip Chelsea to the league title.

Stoke City, winless in their last three league matches, are eleventh in the English Premier League table with twenty one points. Stoke City were held to a 2-2 draw by Leicester City in their last match.
