Jonathan Walters had a marvellous chance to earn a point for the Potters in the final minutes, but his penalty was saved by Liverpool goalkeeper, Simon Mignolet, who also saved the rebound.

Liverpool took the lead in the first half through Daniel Sturridge, to send Mark Hughes' side to defeat in his first Premier League game in charge.
