LIVERPOOL inflicted only a second home defeat of the campaign upon the Potters on Sunday afternoon in arguably the most exhilarating Premier League fixture of 2013/14 thus far.

The visitors looked certain of all three points as bizarre goals from Aly Cissokho and Luis Suarez gave them a two-goal cushion by the time the game had hit the 30-minute mark.

However, a storming Stoke comeback, thanks to efforts from former Anfield stars Peter Crouch and Charlie Adam, in the space of seven minutes, threatened to derail the Reds title challenge.

Referee Anthony Taylor awarded Brendan Rodgers' side a controversial penalty five minutes after the break to allow Steven Gerrard to restore his side's advantage, before a superb Suarez second looked to have finally killed off the spirited home side.

Jonathan Walters, who scored a brace in this fixture last term, halved the deficit with a well-taken effort just six minutes from time, before the game was finally put to bed in stoppage time courtesy of substitute Daniel Sturridge.
