    • Liverpool
    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90+4' The full-time whistle goes at the Britannia Stadium, and Stoke have beaten an impotent Liverpool 2-0 with goals from Ricardo Fuller and Kenwyne Jones - what a win for the hosts! Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+3' Etherington is replaced by Marc Wilson, and the game is over as far as Liverpool are concerned.
    • 90+2' LUCAS IS SENT OFF! The midfielder mistimes a challenge on Delap, and that was out of pure frustration - he's shown a second yellow card!
    • 90+1' There will be four added minutes at the end of this second half, and Liverpool are really struggling.
    • 90' GOAL!!!! JONES MAKES IT TWO! Pennant slides an incisive through ball into the path of Jones, who keeps his composure and beats Reina to make it two! Game over.
    • 89' For some reason Lucas was marking Jones, and of course the striker wins the header, but cannot shoot on target.
    • 88' Konchesky hammers a wild shot over the crossbar, and that was very poor from the full-back.
    • 87' Jon Walters comes on to replace Fuller, and the forward gets a standing ovation following his goal and all-round display.
    • 86' Reina clears upfield towards Torres, but the striker has been almost entirely anonymous.
    • 85' Ngog is penalised for handling the ball, and Collins comes out on top there.
    • 84' Jones continues to put himself about superbly in attack for Stoke, despite all his knocks.
    • 83' Ngog has made very little impact, and the forward is brushed off the ball again by Shawcross.
    • 82' Nope. No it doesn't! Referee Halsey just gives the defender a stern talking to, and he is very lucky there!
    • 81' Kyrgiakos kicks out at Jones, and that was very petulant and could earn the defender a card...
    • 80' Whitehead dictates the play from midfield, and Lucas and Gerrard are not managing to impose themselves.
    • 79' Wilkinson makes a strong challenge on Kuyt to break up the play once more.
    • 78' Etherington has his shot blocked by the Liverpool wall, but Stoke continue to press forward.
    • 77' Skrtel is booked for hauling down Fuller on the edge of the Liverpool box, and this free kick could be dangerous.
    • 76' Hodgson is absolutely furious with his side as he watches on from the touchline, and Liverpool seem to have no response.
    • 75' Huth challenges with Kuyt, and the defender wins a free kick as Liverpool continue to get increasingly frustrated.
    • 74' Ngog links up with Torres, but to no avail as the striker misplaces his pass.
    • 73' Stoke look very comfortable, and Pulis is remarkably calm on the touchline all of a sudden.
    • 72' Gerrard is a very agitated figure now as the Liverpool skipper attempts to lift his side.
    • 71' Stoke are keeping their shape very solidly, and Liverpool do not look like breaching their defences.
    • 70' Kyrgiakos wins a towering header at the back, but he can only find Pennant and lose possession again.
    • 69' Ngog wins a corner for the visitors which Gerrard will trot over to take: what can they do with this?
    • 68' Pulis is out on the touchline berating Pennant for a sloppy pass, and the Stoke boss is very animated indeed.
    • 67' Wilkinson and Shawcross thump long balls into the Liverpool box, and who can blame them? The visitors have really struggled.
    • 66' Liverpool have to go on the attack, and David Ngog comes on to replace Raul Meireles.
    • 65' Jones goes down clutching his ankle, and the forward looks in a lot of pain now.
    • 64' Maxi fires a low shot on target from the edge of the Stoke box, but Begovic does superbly to save with his legs!
    • 63' Jones shrugs off Skrtel to turn and face the Liverpool goal, but he scuffs his shot wide tamely and the chance goes begging!
    • 62' Gerrard leads the break, but Fuller is back to make a strong challenge and win the ball back.
    • 61' Yet another Delap throw in is not cleared properly by Liverpool, who are fortunate to concede a corner.
    • 60' The home fans are in full voice as Delap winds up for another two throw ins to cause havoc once more.
    • 59' Begovic commands his box superbly to claim a high ball inside his box, and that is great keeping.
    • 58' Now Lucas is booked himself for a mistimed trip on Fuller, and that was very clumsy.
    • 57' Danny Collins is booked for a rash challenge on Lucas, and that was fully justified.
    • 56' GOAL!!!! FULLER GIVES STOKE THE LEAD! A Delap throw in causes havoc in the Liverpool box, and after a frantic episode of missed kicks and scuffed clearances, Etherington finds Fuller who beats Reina at the second attempt!
    • 55' Stoke are continuing to keep Liverpool under the cosh and keep pressing.
    • 54' Carragher lumps a long ball up to Torres, and the ball runs out of play: this is poor!
    • 53' Reina is swiftly off his line to clear as a long ball aimed in the direction of Fuller runs astray.
    • 52' Fuller is brushed off the ball by Kyrgiakos, and that was sturdy defending by the Greek.
    • 51' Pennant hurtles down the right at pace for Stoke, but his cross cannot pick out Jones.
    • 50' Gerrard is furious with himself as he fires a free kick high and wide, and that was a waste.

    • 48' Stoke immediately pile bodies into the Liverpool box and force their opponents on to the back foot.
    • 47' Torres is booked for scything down Delap on halfway, and that was a poor challenge.
    • 46' The second half gets underway, and Stoke kick us off looking to resume where they left off.
    • 45+3' The half-time whistle goes at the Britannia Stadium, and it is goalless between Stoke City and Liverpool. The best chances? Well, there could have been two penalties awarded the hosts' way, but neither was given. Let's hope for a bit of class in the second!
    • 45+2' Wilkinson gets in down the right and cuts inside on his left foot... which is a mistake!
    • 45+1' Wilkinson and Pennant combine down the right for Stoke, and the pair test Konchesky but fail to get a cross in.
    • 45' There will be three minutes added at the end of this first half, with Stoke pressing.
    • 44' Wilkinson launches a predictable long ball up to Jones, but Reina is out to claim it.
    • 43' Liverpool stroke the ball around at the back, but Stoke are content to sit in their half for the time being.
    • 42' The Liverpool skipper drives a low shot wide of the far post, and that did not bother Begovic in the slightest.
    • 41' Gerrard and Lucas combine in midfield, but Liverpool are creating nothing in the final third.
    • 40' Fuller and Reina square up to each other in the Liverpool box over nothing it seems - hmmm...
    • 39' Begovic comes out to claim a loose ball in the Stoke half, and the keeper has looked very assured.
    • 37' This time it is Skrtel who goes down injured after a clash with Jones, and this will soon be a case of last man standing!
    • 36' Konchesky battles away with Pennant once more, and Stoke are on top in this first half.
    • 35' Carragher challenges with Etherington, and the Stoke man comes out on top, but cannot find Jones.
    • 34' Begovic commands his box well to clear upfield after Shawcross battles with Torres once more.
    • 33' Jones is through on goal, but a shoddy touch sees the opportunity go begging, with Etherington unable to convert his subsequent cross!
    • 32' Fuller this time wins a towering header, and the Liverpool defenders are barely winning a single aerial ball at the moment.
    • 31' Kuyt trots off gingerly to the touchline, and the Dutchman looks in real pain but will clearly continue.
    • 30' Kuyt goes down clutching his head after a challenge with Collins, and that looks pretty painful!
    • 29' Meireles has a crack from range, but it fizzes wide of the near post with Begovic comfortable.
    • 28' Kuyt battles back to dispossess Pennant, but he cannot make progress himself.
    • 27' Gerrard finds Torres with a raking diagonal pass, but the striker is isolated on his own.
    • 26' Reina does superbly to command his box and punch clear amid a crowd of bodies.
    • 25' Jones is fouled by Carragher, and now Stoke have another chance to bombard the Liverpool box.
    • 24' There is a long hold up in play as Etherington receives treatment, and it looked pretty innocuous.
    • 23' Lucas brings down Etherington, who again stays down for a bizarre amount of time.
    • 22' Shawcross is penalised for a foul on Carragher, and Liverpool can build once more.
    • 21' Konchesky battles with Pennant, only to foul the winger, and Stoke have a free kick.
    • 20' Fuller and Pennant combine down the Stoke right, but Jones cannot take the cross in his stride.
    • 19' A Delap throw in sees Konchesky shepherd the ball out of play at the back post very dangerous with Fuller lurking.
    • 18' Meireles fouls Etherington out on the Stoke left, but there was very little in that.
    • 17' Wilkinson launches a long throw down the line to Pennant, and Stoke are dominating the aerial play.
    • 16' Gerrard whips over a testing corner which Stoke do very well to clear through Huth.
    • 15' Collins looks for Jones with a raking diagonal pass, but it runs astray and Liverpool can build.
    • 14' Torres and Shawcross have an altercation in the Stoke half, but it is all handbags and play carries on.
    • 13' Whitehead lashes a fierce strike from range, and this time it fizzes over the crossbar - it's all Stoke!
    • 12' Maxi attempts a long ball up to Torres, but that was poor and it runs out of play.
    • 11' What a strike, and what a save! Whitehead unleashes a stunning strike from range which Reina does superbly to tip behind for a corner!
    • 10' Wilkinson wins a throw in for his side with a powerful run down the right, and this is Delap territory once more!
    • 9' Jones and Fuller are occupying the Liverpool defence and causing real problems early in this match.
    • 8' Fuller takes the ball down in his stride and lashes a wild shot over the crossbar!
    • 7' Stoke have another big appeal for a penalty as Skrtel wrestles Delap to the floor in the Liverpool box, but this one sees both parties guilty!
    • 6' Maxi bundles over Fuller in the Liverpool box, and a huge appeal goes up from the home fans and Stoke players - it's a contentious one, but Mark Halsey says no.
    • 5' Right, here's the first Rory Delap throw in of the match, and Skrtel deals with it very effectively.
    • 4' Gerrard and Lucas keep the ball in midfield patiently, and the visitors begin to settle into this first half.
    • 3' Hodgson is out in his technical area already, stroking his chin in pensive fashion as Stoke keep possession.
    • 2' Whitehead has a speculative effort from range which is blocked away by Skrtel, and Liverpool can clear.
    • 1' The first half is underway at the Britannia, and Liverpool kick us off in their all-black strip.
    • 17:25 Right, the players emerge out of the tunnel with a fervent atmosphere being generated at the Britannia, and after a minute's silence we will get going.
    • 17:20 Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has expressed his disappointment at Glen Johnson's performances for the club this season and told the 26-year-old he is not playing like England's right-back. Read more
    • 17:15 "Liverpool's win over Chelsea was thoroughly deserved, and offers plenty of hope of Roy Hodgson beginning to make progress at the club, but the midweek draw at Wigan shows they still have a way to go yet." That's the view of Paul Parker. Read the blog in full: Liverpool need to rule Britannia
