EPL: Stoke City v Liverpool, Britannia Stadium, 15:00BST, 10/09/11 (1-0)

A penalty that should not have been gifted Stoke three points, when otherwise their stout defending might have grudgingly earned them a point. However, our failure to score played its part, as we failed to take chances despite creating them.

The Stoke goal was scored by Walters, the player who went to ground far too easily under the challenge of Carragher, who will rue the fact that his arms were flailing too close to the Stoke player, which was evidently enough to convince the ref, in the blink of an eye, that a foul had been committed.

Suarez and Henderson spurned opportunities to not just draw us level, but win the game, but instead we went down again to another frustrating away defeat to Stoke City, a side that under Tony Pulis is slowly but surely getting better and better, season by season.
