No Scorer in Liverpool v Stoke City 10/1

Given Liverpool's struggles in front of goal without Luis Suarez and their inability to get on top of teams they are expected to beat, particularly at their own ground, few of the Reds faithful would have travelled to Anfield with a huge amount of confidence for a battle with Tony Pulis' stubborn Stoke City.

Throw into the mix the fact that Stoke had never won at Anfield in 48 attempts, and it was apparent that Saturday afternoon would see Kenny Dalglish's men struggle to hit the net, and that they certainly did.

The home side huffed and puffed for 90 minutes but they simply couldn't break Stoke down, even if they were denied a couple of penalties by referee Howard Webb.

A scoreless draw felt right before this game -- and maybe the best way to enjoy a nil-all is to back it.
