- Brace from second half sub Divock Origi helps Klopp's side ease to victory
- Bojan's header cancelled out Alberto Moreno's early opener
- Daniel Sturridge scored his eighth goal of the season after 32 minutes
Liverpool leapfrog Stoke City into eighth in the table thanks to big win at Anfield. The scoreline might flatter the home side somewhat, but Jurgen Klopp's side fully deserve their win ahead of the visit of Borussia Dortmund on Thursday.
FULL TIME: Liverpool 4-1 Stoke City
Two minutes of injury time added on here. Peter Crouch tries to his luck with an ambitious half volley on the edge of the D that needs a deflection to take it wide.
Liverpool swarm forward again and Lallana belts one on goal from 25 yards out but Shawcross makes a brave block.
Stoke's delivery into the box was terrific in the first half but they have struggled to get those sort of balls into the box in the second. Diouf tries a different approach, breaking in from the right flank at pace but powers a hopeless ball across goal that has far too much on it, well out of Joselu's reach.
Final change for Stoke, Cameron is off to be replaces by Marc Muniesa.
Shawcross chases Origi into the corner as the Belgian beats him to Moreno's long ball down the wing. The Stoke centre half throws out a petulant kick after conceding the corner and is booked for his trouble.
10 minutes remaining in this match. Another Stoke goal would make it interesting, but they haven't looked like doing that in a while.
Here's a change for Liverpool with Lucas, having missed the last seven games through injury, replacing Joe Allen.
Kevin Stewart has had a very good second half for Liverpool. Nothing particularly eye-catching, but he has cleaned up in midfield dilligently and held his position well.
Mamem Biram Diouf has also come on for the away side, replacing Shaqiri. The Swiss international only returned to training last week following a thigh problem.
A change for Stoke here, Bojan's afternoon is over with Joselu coming onto replace him. Liverpool have been good in this second half, but the 4-1 scoreline flatters them.
Origi has a second! The young Belgian dances his way down the left flank before cutting inside, drifting past Bardsley and curling a ball into the box. It looks like a ball for Sturridge who is breaking into the six yard area but it sneaks past both him and the Stoke goalkeeper and straight into the far corner!
Goal! Liverpool 4-1 Stoke City (Divock Origi, 64)
Liverpool almost score a tremendous fourth! It's brilliant from Sturridge, who back heels a perfectly weighted ball into the path of the onrushing Moreno down the left. He lifts an inviting ball into the box, but Origi can't keep his header on target.
Crisp passing from Liverpool around the penalty box results in Firmino firing on goal from an impossibly tight angle. It draw a saves from the Stoke goalkeeper at his near post.
Stoke almost pull one back! Shaqiri loops another cross into the box that Cameron meets and loops a header that Mignolet has to palm over. Great entertainment at the minute, but it's a fairly awful advertisement for defending crosses from both these sides.
What a bizarre goal that would have been! Pieters takes too long to clear, inviting Firmino to chase him down. When he does eventually lump the ball forward, it rebounds back off the Brazilian and nearly loops into the back of the net! It doesn't fall quite quickly enough and bounces off the top of the bar.
Origi has his second goal of the week! From that corner, Sturridge comes short and plays it back to Milner who whips an inviting ball into the box. Just like the Liverpool defenders were for Bojan's goal, the Stoke players have left Origi completely open inside the six yard area and he nods home. Easy.
Goal! Liverpool 3-1 Stoke City (Divock Origi, 49)
Milner slips a clever ball down the inside right channel that Origi runs onto. He outmuscles Pieters well to keep the ball alive and force a cross over that is cleared for a corner.
Stoke make a right mess of the attempted clearance from that resulting free kick, almost allowing Moreno another crack on goal, but they eventually manage to force it away.
Sturridge plays a neat one two with Firmino but is clattered into by Shawcross before he gets to the return. It's the Stoke defender who comes off the worse, but Liverpool get the free kick.
And Liverpool get us back underway for the second half. One change to bring to you, Divock Origi comes on for Ojo.
