Simon Mignolet was lucky not to be sent off against Stoke

He told Liverpool's official website: "It shows the depth of this squad". His late goals turned an anxious struggle into a stroll. I am really happy that I could give him this opportunity tonight. His ability to link up play was solid, but the forward struggled to make an individual impact up front.

"I don't think we got the benefit of the doubt from the officials on too many occasions tonight, to be perfectly honest". A goal-scoring opportunity. But in real time, the ref saw the incident as merely a free kick and a yellow card. Goals and speed helped him fit smoothly into Jurgen Klopp's master plan. "That's the reason, that's the rule".

When he came back, things soon improved.

This season began with a return to last season's quality. At the moment it's happening with gusto in a place called Stoke.

"It would not have been a penalty, it was outside the box".

- Mohamed Salah has had a hand in 14 goals in his 14 games for Liverpool this season in the Premier League (12 goals, 2 assists).

- Sadio Mané scored for the first time in six Premier League games for Liverpool, ending his longest top-flight goal-drought with the Reds (5 games).

"He needs rhythm now". The three points moved Liverpool above Tottenham in the table.

"Mame Diouf nicked the ball past the goalkeeper, the keeper has wiped him out and should have been sent off. Clearly", Hughes said.

But add in the fact that Diouf had the goal gaping at his mercy and it would appear it had to warrant a sending off. They've looked altogether more dangerous since then, with 20 goals scored in seven games.

Is Henderson the problem?

Falling behind forced a change of shape and Stoke started to get a foothold in the match.

Liverpool were obviously able to keep eleven men on the pitch and then continue with their eventual 0-3 onslaught of Stoke.

What was on the Anfield team's bench and playing, proved Klopp undoubtedly has a squad to work with.

Here are four findings from the match.

"If you think the single foul was a red card, I might have to see it again but I don't think it was, but he's not the last man". I am angry with that.
