For the second time this season, Liverpool went to Stoke City and emerged with an important 1-0 victory.

In the grand scheme of things it doesn’t matter what competition it was in; the Reds needed to bounce back after a torrid afternoon at Upton Park on Saturday. And they did so.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are now one game away from Wembley – they just have to achieve a draw or better in the second leg. Though, that task may prove difficult, particularly as the treatment room became even more crowded thanks to injuries to Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren and Kolo Toure.

Here are the player ratings from the match.
