Liverpool host Stoke City in the 13th round of Premier League in a desperate attempt to put their campaign back on track and hope for some consistency from Mignolet. Currently the visitors are on the 11th place in the table, with a one point advantage over Liverpool, who embarrassed themselves in their latest Champions League fiasco.
Brendan Rodgers refused to blame Mignolet for the fault that allowed Ludogorets to equalize, which outs the Reds in a must win situation against Basel should they seek qualification. In the Premier League, The Reds are unable to win since October, and have recorded four defeats in a row in all competitions. Nobody would have predicted such a despicable performance from the team that won the respect of almost everyone last year when they were battling for the title. Rodgers is under fire due to the lackluster performance, and he will have to do so without Sturridge, Balotelli and Flanagan all out with different degrees of injuries.
Stoke City come from a defeat against Burnley, and will miss out on Victor Moses, set to face eight weeks out of play due to a severe thigh injury. The visitors have three unavailable wingers for the Liverpool trip, which opens up the space for an Austrian jewel to finally make a move for the starter position. Marko Arnautovic will try to play a part in Stoke pushing for the win against a Liverpool side with many inconsistencies to exploit.
