Liverpool Held to a Disappointing Draw against Stroke City

Liverpool was held to a goal less disappointing draw against Stroke City in the weekend. On the back of their confidence-booster 2-1 victory over Manchester United last week, it was thought that the All Reds would pull off a big margin victory against Stroke City. Actually, Liverpool dominated throughout the match creating a number of chances, but the resistance of the visiting side was such that I would say they deserved a point from the match, though I would not say that Liverpool did not deserve three points in the match.

Actually, it was Liverpool’s bad luck that did not let the home fans leave the ground with a victory celebration. Captain Michael Gerrard started celebrating his 100th league goal for Liverpool after sending the ball into the Stroke City net from a curled free kick, but the goal was disallowed for offside. However, television reply proved that it has been a controversial decision. Robbie Keane, Xabi Alonso, Dirk Kuyt and Fernando Torres all missed solid chances coming in their way throughout the match.

The home draw could be an alarm for the Rafael Benitez side in the title race. Looking back to the previous few seasons, it is apparent that Liverpool very often loses point in similar fashion against underdog teams, but at the end of the season those points matter most. Now, let us see if Liverpool can come out of the patch and create a real threat for three other big clubs in the title race of premier league. With this victory, Liverpool holds on the second place of the table with 11 points from five matches. However, they might move down to the third if Chelsea can win at least a point against Manchester United.
