Liverpool came from behind to score twice and bag all three points away from home.

Klopp decided to give Origi a start upfront and rest some of his key players. 17-year-old Ben Woodburn also got his opportunity as he started alongside Origi. Coutinho, Firmino, and Studdrige all found places on the bench. Clearly, Klopp did not want to overplay his players and get into another injury trap.

But it looks like problems are following Jurgen Klopp like a faithful pet. The Reds went a goal down just as the referee was about to blow the half-time whistle. Shaqiri put in a wonderful cross and Walters was there to meet it.

The Liverpool manager who is already missing the services of Sadio Mane did not want to take any more chances. He put his firepower onto the field in the form of Firmino and Coutinho. And both the substitutes delivered in fine fashion.

Coutinho leveled the game for the visitors with a neat finish on the 70th-minute mark. And then just after two minutes, Firmino gave Liverpool a much-deserved lead with a sensational volley. In the absence of Mane both, the Brazilians stepped up to the plate and gifted Klopp all the three points.

Another big reason behind Liverpool’s win is definitely their goalkeeper Mignolet. The Belgian made two world-class saves in the second half to keep Liverpool afloat.

Speaking after the match the Liverpool manager said that the win was absolutely massive. He said that Stoke is a difficult place to come to and the win was very important. Liverpool are currently in the third position after the win. The are five points short of second place Spurs who are on 68 points. But Klopp biggest headache would be the fact that his team has played a game more than all of his nearby rivals.
