After three goals in ten minutes had Liverpool rocking, few fans could have thought it would get any worse.

That proved to be false – Stoke have added two more in the final four minutes of the half. The fourth came from ex Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam, as he guided a wonderful effort into the bottom corner, and the fifth came from Steven N’Zonzi, as he bent a wonder goal into the top corner.

It is currently half time.

The result will call Brendan Rodgers tenure into serious question. Raheem Sterling will no longer be on the back pages – instead the rumours will be about whether Rodgers had lost the dressing room.

The Klopp to Liverpool stories are also bound to intensify. He would be a natural fit at the club and Liverpool’s owner have shown they are prepared to be ruthless when it comes to changing managers.
