League Cup: Stoke 1-2 Liverpool – You Need To See This Luis Suarez Goal, It’s Bloody Magnificent (Photos & Highlights)

By Chris Wright

‘Twas a damn fine effort Sir!

A second-half double from a fizzing Luis Suarez was enough to see Liverpool into the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup at the Britannia last night, after Kenwyne Jones had put Stoke one up a minute before half-time with a neat near-post diving header.

Suarez nabbed the winner in the 85th minute, heading in Jordan Henderson’s looping volleyed cross, but his equaliser ten minutes after the break is the goal everybody’s talking about this morning – and with good reason.

After picking the ball up wide on the left, Suarez advanced, nutmegged Ryan Shotton and then let fly with an immaculate, curling shot from the edge of the area that arched around the flailing Thomas Sorensen and clipped in off the right-hand upright.

I strongly urge that you give it the once-over on the video below, it’ll definitely be worth your while.

    Stoke fans boo Suarez and seconds later Liverpool score. Stoke fans cheer Reina slipping over and seconds later Liverpool score.

  2. Fredmeister says:

    Sweet goal.

    Makes up for the fact that he pisses away chance after chance.

    Scorer of great goals, not a great goal scorer.

  3. Hootie says:

    Remember when Suarez was going to be a gigantic flop in England?

  4. Madjair says:

    Can anyone explain what was going on with the lines on that pitch? Looks like the groundkeeper made a giant mistake and was forced to do it all over…

    • Chris says:

      @Madjair: I noticed it during last week’s Europa League game. Anyone know if Stoke chop and change their pitch size on a ‘whether Rory Delap is playing or not’ basis?

  5. johnny says:

    @chris and @madjair, they are forced to lengthen and widen the pitch for their europa games, and they narrow it for the domestic games…

  6. chimpo says:

    shouldnt that be “Pielights” ?

  7. Madjair says:

    @ Johnny: Thanks!
    @ Chris: I was thinking the same, must have something to do with Delap’s throw ins…
