Liverpool 0-0 Stoke: Toothless Reds Stumble To Yet Another Anfield Draw (Photos & Highlights)

By Alan Duffy

Liverpool 0-0 Stoke City – Premier League – 14th January 2012

Another Anfield fixture, another draw. Liverpool made it seven draws out of 11 home league games this season after failing to penetrate a hard-working Stoke backline on Saturday.

Looking at the teamsheets before the game, with Kenny Dalglish’s deciding to start with five at the back and only one striker, a goalless draw was arguably the most likely outcome, particularly when the out of form Dirk Kuyt was the lone attacker in the Reds’ line-up.

Tony Pulis’ oft-derided Stoke side put on another well-drilled performance, limiting the Reds to only a few decent goal-scoring chances.

Just before the hour-mark, Dalglish threw Andy Carroll into the action, but the targetman once again failed to find the net, with most of his energies focused on a succession of desperate penalty claims.

Liverpool stay sixth, one point behind Arsenal (who have played a game less), while the Potters now find themselves n eighth, just five points behind none other than the Reds themselves.

    I would laugh at df’s comment if I wasn’t crying. We’re so average, it’s depressing. For the love of Robbie Fowler, buy a goal scorer, Kenny.

  5. Lady B says:

    Riley, I agree with you! We’re woeful in the striker department! *sigh*

    Karma for all the racism and stupidity happening at Anfield?

  7. C says:

    I “forced” two of my friends to watch the match with me. I apologized afterwards for wasting 90 minutes of their lives :(

  8. Anabelle says:

    Enough already. Cut your losses and get rid of Carroll and Henderson, they are mediocre.

    At this rate LFC has no chance to finish top 4.Just heard that KK will be getting a striker. Let’s hope is not another donkey.

  9. Dave says:

    Perhaps Dalglish isnt the messiah you dopes thought he was after all.
