Liverpool is one step away from Wembley Stadium, but so is Stoke City — albeit a bigger leap than the Reds must take.
Liverpool hosts Stoke City on Tuesday at Anfield in the second leg of their Capital One Cup (Football League Cup) semifinal. The Reds lead 1-0 coming into the decisive contest thanks to their first-leg victory on Jan. 5.
Stoke City has won twice and drawn once in four games since its last meeting with Liverpool, but the 3-0 defeat it suffered Saturday against Leicester City raises questions about the current state of Mark Hughes’ team. Can the Potters hold off Liverpool without injured defender Ryan Shawcross? Can they win at Anfield for the first time since 1959?
The fact that Liverpool has never lost a League Cup semifinal at Anfield should comfort fans ahead of the meeting with Stoke City. Liverpool’s 5-4 win over Norwich City on Saturday was both thrilling and frustrating, and manager Jurgen Klopp will look to tighten his defense against Stoke City.
Here’s how to watch Liverpool-Stoke City.
When: Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2:45 p.m. ET
