Liverpool start their new campaign were they ended the last, at the Britannia Stadium. Brendan Rodgers' team were defeated 6-1 by the Potters on the last day of the 2014-15 season, and he will definitely be looking to heal the scars of the club’s heaviest defeat for 52 years by starting with a win on Saturday. The Liverpool fans will be seeking immediate improvement starting with their first clash of the season as there will be no excuses if they leave Stoke without a point, but a win will be a good start for the Reds.

Mark Hughes has signed eight new players and with Steven Nzonzi out of the club and Ryan Shawcross' absence due to injury, it could affect the balance of Stoke City.
