Brendan Rodgers’s side travel to the Brittania Stadium with the hope of launching back their English Premiership title ambition

Stoke City welcome Liverpool to the Brittania Stadium in Sunday’s EPL encounter. After a disappointing finish last year, they Reds will be aiming at re-engineering their hopes of winning the Premiership title.

Rodgers’s men come into this game with wins over Hull City and Oldham Athletic and they are outstanding favorites to secure another victory when they take on the Potters this weekend, with Ladbrokes offering them at 11/20 (1.55) .

Stoke are chalked up at 11/2 (6.50) with Ladbrokes to see off the Reds at home baring in mind that they dismissed Leicester City in the third round of the English FA Cup last weekend.

You can back the draw at 3/1 (4.00) according to the same bookies.

Liverpool may have won just one of their last five matches on the road; it is worth noting that when the Reds have been on-song, they have won convincingly this term. They last won at Stoke in the league more than 29 years ago, in November 1984.

Both sides are available at 4/5 (1.80) to score in this encounter.

Goalkeeper Jack Butland could make his first Premier League start for Stoke against Liverpool on Sunday, though Thomas Sorensen is back in training with Asmir Begovic having broken a finger, Butland came off the bench to replace Sorensen against Everton and started the FA Cup third-round win over Leicester City. 

Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez will be hoping to add to his impressive goal tally against the Potters this weekend and is decent value to do so here.

The 26-year-old front man has netted at least two goals in four of his last eight matches and the juicy 7/2 (4.50) quote from Ladbrokes for Suarez to get the curtain raiser at Brittania Stadium. 

Iago Aspas and Philippe Coutinho can be backed at 7/1 (8.00) to score first. A total goals over 2.5 at 7/10 (1.70) appears to represent excellent value for punters this weekend.
