Who would have guessed it? Joe Allen becomes Liverpool hero after his penalty wins the match against Stoke.

The reds went into the 2nd leg at Anfield just needing to draw after their 1-0 away win in the 1st leg. But it was the boys in the Stoke City shirts which took the game to Liverpool during the first half. The potters dominance of the match and possession earned them some luck after the linesman failed to raise his flag after Stokes number 10 Marko Arnautović scored right on the stroke of H/T

LFC grew into the match during the second half but it stayed 1-1 on aggregate all the way to penalties.

@alexmearns7 reviews the match and gives his opinion that this victory may cover over the cracks, that the reds manager Jurgen Klopp has not made a very good start to his time at Anfield.
