Liverpool picked up an impressive 5-3 victory on Stoke on Sunday. This was an thrilling end-to-end game which left many Liverpool fans on the edge of their seat.

Stoke is never an easy place to visit and the Reds had never won their in the Premier League. What was highly impressive to note from Liverpool is that they showed they can be physical too just like Stoke and we were no pushovers. Our class in the end pulled through as our players are much better than those of Stoke and with Suarez and Sturridge in the side, anything is possible for Liverpool this season.

Some Liverpool players took to Twitter after the game to share their thoughts:



Sturridge made his return in this game after being out with an ankle injury. It only took him a few minutes to setup an assist for Suarez and then find the back of the net himself. The SAS partnership is now back and what a joy that is for Liverpool fans. Hopefully those two can steer us to Premier League success.



Liverpool’s defence is still showing some signs of weakness and the constant injuries to our centre backs is not helping. Mignolet was partly at fault for Stoke’s third goal but the Belgian keeper pulled off some important saves during the games. The Liverpool number one still has a lot of work to do but he is certainly on the right path.



I still have lots of doubts over Glen Johnson’s recent form. Yet again against Stoke he was very average. If we had an inform Johnson in the side pulling off his stunning runs forward then we would have another great attacking option. Johnson simply has to pull his socks up for us.



With Agger being out injured for a month, Liverpool’s defensive options are thin. The giant Dane has been at the club for 8 years now and having him fit again soon will really help us with our push for a top four finish.

    Mingolet : he has suddenly looked very unsure , a good G/K would have saved all 3 of Stokes goals . He also lost us the 2 games vs. City & Chelsea .
    Agger : He is now very injury prone .
    Johnson : Since he was told he will have to take a pay cut to get a new contract he has given up on Liverpool . A big mistake telling him this. We should buy Versaliko from Turin & sell Johnno now .
    We should also get Yann M`vila , & Danny Ings . These 3 would cost around 25m . Which we could easily recoup by selling Johnno 10m Reina 6m. Lucas 8m , then 2 of the following Borini , Assaidi , Allen , Aspas , Alberto . Start using the talented youngsters in the reserves .
    The reason I would get Danny Ings is to rotate with Sturridge who I would use as an impact player ie coming on at half time etc. He showed vs Everton & Stoke how effective he can be against a tiring side. One last thing send back Moses not worth 90k per week .
