Cameron: Stoke ready for Liverpool after Swansea victory

Geoff Cameron believes that Stoke City's first win of the Premier League season against Swansea City on Saturday has buoyed his team-mates ahead of their clash with Liverpool.

The versatile USA international played at right-back against the Swans and helped his side to a comfortable 2-0 victory thanks to two goals from Peter Crouch.

And the summer signing from Houston Dynamo feels that the eagerly anticipated first three points could not have come at a better time for the Potters.

"I think it was a big win for us," he told Sky Sports. "Obviously we played some tough teams before, so to finally get the three points at home is a big step and it gives us momentum going into the Liverpool game.

"They won, too, so we've both got some momentum. With them playing at home they obviously have the fans behind them and will want to continue from their result."

Cameron also suggested that overcoming the south Wales outfit could serve as good practice for the Liverpool game, as the two sides play in a similar way due to the influence of former Swans boss Brendan Rodgers.

"I think there are similar styles between Swansea and Liverpool and I think we frustrated Swansea," he observed. "We cannot expect Liverpool to be exactly the same as them, but there are definitely similarities.

"We have to go there with the frame of mind that we can beat them. Every team is beatable but it's just a matter of how well we execute our game plan.

"Against Swansea we had some pretty good possession too - we controlled it at the back and had some good possession in midfield, so I think we can do that on Sunday."
