  1. 90+4

    Howard Webb brings the game to an end and Stoke are worthy winners. Liverpool led early on but were stunned by Stoke's immediate fightback. Walter scored a cracker in the second half to put a seal on it and for all Liverpool's possession, the three points deserve to go to the home side. Stoke go up to eighth, above Liverpool who fall to 10th. Thanks for joining us this evening.

  2. 90+4

    Shelvey tries to find Cole in the box but the pass is cut out. It's happened all night and Liverpool are beaten now.

  3. 90+3

    Possession stats will be interesting. Liverpool currently at 63 per cent but you can't say Stoke don't deserve to be winning this game. It's what you do with it that counts!

  4. 90+2

    Suarez tries a shot from distance but it's weak, along the floor and wide.

  5. 90

    There will be four added minutes.

  6. 89

    Good effort from Gerrard is kept out by Begovic. The England star hits a curling effort from around 22 yards but the keeper dives to his left to parry.

  7. 88

    Suarez is on the attack again. This time he pops up wide on the right and sends a dangerous ball across the face of goal. However, only Sterling is anywhere near it and he can't quite get to it in time.

  8. 87

    Suarez is up to take the free kick but blasts it straight into the wall.

  9. 86

    Whelan ends Suarez's run abruptly, tripping him on the edge of the box. Easy decision to book the Stoke player that one.

  10. 84

    Enrique gives N'Zonzi a push in the back to concede an obvious free kick near halfway.

  11. 83

    Here comes the aforementioned Shotton. But it's Etherington who is going off, not Cameron. The winger has been impressive tonight.

  12. 82

    Shelvey gives Huth a shove after conceding a free kick against Begovic. No yellow card though.

  13. 81

    Etherington down the left again. His cross isn't the best though and Skrtel heads away.

  14. 80

    A ball is knocked up by Enrique to Suarez in the box but he can't control is first time and is forced wide. The chance goes begging with Sterling eventually having a shot which is partially blocked and then collected by Begovic.

  15. 78

    A standing ovation for Kenwyne Jones as he goes off and Peter Crouch comes on against his old club.

  16. 77

    Liverpool make their final change - Joe Cole replaces Downing.

  17. 76

    Another good forward run by Walters. He finds Wilkinson in the box but his shot is charged down by Skrtel.

  18. 75

    Shelvey gets a talking to for tripping Whitehead. Nothing more though.

  19. 73

    Whelan delivers the corner but Gerrard does well, heading clear at the near post.

  20. 72

    Reina is OK after treatment. Soon after play resumes, Skrtel concedes a corner.
