Stoke City v Liverpool

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes still angry with Martin Atkinson Liverpool decision

Simon Mignolet was fortunate to not be shown a red card during Liverpool's clash with Stoke, with the Belgium worldwide hacking down Mame Biram Diouf just ahead of the half-time whistle. He said, "He [Klopp] asked me to play on the right side and one time I tried to ask for the ball in the number nine position".

Liverpool will look to extend their six-match unbeaten run in all competitions at Stoke on Wednesday, where they have won on their last three visits.

"We had a lot of work to do, with Peter Crouch on the pitch it makes it hard, and [Stoke] are good on the ground".

This brace takes his total to 12 goals across just 14 league games in his debut season for the Merseysiders, extending his lead atop the golden boot race.

At the weekend Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino effectively said they could not catch City, who are 13 points ahead of his side, but Klopp would not follow suit.

The opening 17 minutes provided no warning of the controversy which was to come.

That sense of injustice, even though replays suggested the whole of the ball had not gone out, raised the temperature.

Joel Matip and Joe Gomez were alongside Diouf as he bore down on goal, but they weren't goal-side of him-had he managed to round Mignolet without being fouled, it's unclear if they would have been able to cover before Diouf got a shot away.

The hosts then had an even greater grievance as captain for the night Mignolet swung a leg at Diouf on the edge of the area.

Despite what happened, Mane has insisted that there is no rift going on between himself and Klopp.

STOKE: Grant, Zouma, Shawcross, Martins Indi, Diouf, Fletcher (Adam 85), Allen, Pieters, Shaqiri, Choupo-Moting (Jese 74), Crouch.
