The myth of cold windy night at Stoke might haunt the Reds this weekend when they will lock horns at bet365 Stadium on Wednesday night.
The Potters are going through a rough patch currently but delivered a stellar display against the heavyweights like Manchester United and Arsenal. They will be desperate to replicate the same this midweek against Liverpool whose winning streak was halted by Sevilla and Chelsea as the Merseysiders failed to hold the lead on both occasions and the fixtures eventually ended in all square.
