Four Years Ago Today: Liverpool Were Smashed 6-1 By Stoke City

Four Years Ago Today: Liverpool Were Smashed 6-1 By Stoke City  - FootyNews.co.uk

Liverpool are just a week away from the Champions League final and what could be a historic day for the club as they chase their sixth European Cup.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will fancy their chances of beating Tottenham due to their very impressive form this season.

But how times have changed for the whole club in the space of just a few years.

Thanks to Redmen TV, they’ve taken some supporters’ minds back to the final day of the 2014/15 season – three years ago today exactly – when Stoke ran out 6-1 winners over them in the Premier League.

As they put together the final preparations for the European showpiece in Madrid on June 1, this result should remind everyone just how far they’ve come.

Brendan Rodgers was their manager for that game, while Steven Gerrard was still captain and players like Joe Allen, Mamadou Sakho and Martin Skrtel were still in the team.

Now, they’ve got stars like Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk helping them get success at a higher level and Klopp deserves enormous credit for helping them get to that.

Can Liverpool overcome the challenge of Spurs in the Champions League final?

Let us know in the comments.
