The teams drew 0-0 here last January (as they had done earlier in the 2008-09 campaign).
The Reds biggest away league win at Stoke came in March 1982 when they won 5-1 with Terry McDermott, Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Sammy Lee and Ronnie Whelan all scoring. The Reds went on to clinch the title.
That is the only time Liverpool have won a league game at Stoke by two goals or more.
Liverpool have lost only two of their last 16 league visits.

No Liverpool player has scored a league hat-trick at Stoke. However two players have achieved the feat at Anfield. Andy McGuigan became the first to score five goals in a game for the club as the Reds won convincingly 7-0 in 1902 while Roger Hunt netted four in a 6-1 victory on Boxing Day 1963.
Liverpool are three goals short of scoring 350 in league games under Rafa Benitez.
