Stoke City 1-2 Liverpool : Super Subs Coutinho And Firmino Save The Reds

The Reds took all three points from the Potters at the Bet365 Stadium after staging a wonderful three minutes comeback canceling out  Jonathan Walters goal before halftime and taking the lead in the 71st minute.
The First half was more leveled as both sides seemed to cancel out the other each time there was a loop in the defenses though Shaqiri had a goal disallowed earlier in the game due to offside but the ever persistent Stoke had a ball in the net by half time.
Liverpool were caught out at the back as Johnson picked out Shaqiri, who sent a great cross to the near post after skipping past Klavan. Walters was there to steer the ball beyond the reach of Mignolet with a powerful header giving the Host a lead just before halftime.
Jurgen Kloop had two changes to his side Firmino replaced Woodburn while Alexander-Arnold made way for Coutinho in the 46th minute, both substitutes gave a turn around to the game in just three minutes.
The Brazilian has made a huge impact off the bench and gets a deserved leveller for the visitors. Stoke were unable to clear their lines from a cross into the box and Coutinho collected the ball before placing it past Grant into the bottom corner.

Then two minutes later, Wijnaldum sends Firmino over the top of the Stoke defence. He times his run to perfection before producing a sensational volley, firing his effort over Grant into the net.
Liverpool are now 63 points in third position with six games left for them this season. Jurgen Kloop Should be happy with his side.
