Liverpooll legend and captain, Steven Gerrard will be aiming to finish his Liverpool career with a win as Liverpool travel to Stoke City on Sunday Gerrard’s farewell match at Anfield ended in a defeat against Crystal Palace last weekend as Alan Pardew’s men ran out 3-1 winners at Merseyside.
But Gerrard will be hoping for better at the Britannia in his final match before he jets off to the MLS to join LA Galaxy. Liverpool have only won one of their last five matches and could slip down to seventh – out of automatic qualification for the Europa League – if they are beaten and Tottenham and Southampton win.
Stoke surpassed their record points haul in the Premier League with a draw at Burnley last weekend and are assured of finishing ninth. But they have lost their last three meetings with Liverpool, including a 1-0 reverse earlier this season.
