After Rafa’s rant about Ferguson, I was afraid we might lose ground against Stoke again.
He picked a side without either Robbie Keane or Fernando Torres nullifying our attacking threat.
Thus, we paid the price as we had no cutting edge up front.
Indeed it was more like a cup-tie as every ball was fought for by both teams throughout, with no patterns in play, no continuity and no end-result.
However, we gained a point against a tough team, we are still top of the league by four points from Chelsea who play the dreaded Mancs tomorrow.
The best outcome for Liverpool is a draw which means Chelsea and Manchester United both drop two points.
However I would gladly settle for a Chelsea win, just to keep Man Utd at arm’s length.
