Liverpool vs Stoke live stream details, TV channel, odds and more

With European semi-final second legs on the horizon next week, there could be a temptation for Jurgen Klopp to preserve his star players on Saturday.

Liverpool will take a 5-2 lead to Roma on Wednesday night as they attempt to avoid a three-goal defeat to reach the final of the Champions League.

It sounds a simple enough task but Roma achieved exactly that against Barcelona in the previous round, so Reds boss Klopp will want the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Saido Mane fresh and firing on all cylinders.

Should Klopp choose to rest the trio, and possibly others, it could have implications for the Premier League relegation battle as Stoke visit Anfield.

Paul Lambert’s men lie second from bottom, four points from safety but have played a game more than Southampton and Swansea who sit directly above the Potters.

Team news

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has a selection dilemma ahead of the visit of Stoke on Saturday with only three fit senior midfielders available.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the latest to have his season ended after he sustained knee ligament damage in the midweek win over Roma. That could lead to an opening for youngster Ben Woodburn to feature alongside Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum.

Forward Sadio Mane is unlikely to be risked after he was pictured visiting a private hospital on Thursday, although Klopp insisted the Senegal international’s problem was not serious.

Squad : Karius, Gomez, Klavan, Van Dijk, Moreno, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Woodburn, Salah, Ings, Firmino, Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Clyne, Lovren, Robertson, Milner, Jones, Kane, Solanke.

Stoke are set to be without right-back Glen Johnson.

The defender suffered a recurrence of his groin injury during last weekend’s draw with Burnley so Kurt Zouma is likely to deputise.

Forward Eric Choupo-Moting (groin) and defender Kostas Stafylidis (fractured rib) remain on the sidelines.

Squad : Butland, Grant, Shawcross, Zouma, Martins Indi, Wimmer, Cameron, Bauer, Pieters, Adam, Fletcher, Allen, Ndiaye, Ireland, Shaqiri, Sobhi, Crouch, Campbell, Diouf, Sorensen.


Liverpool – 1/3

Draw – 9/2

Stoke – 19/2
