Stoke City boss says “he is keeping everything crossed that his stunning record at Liverpool remains intact beyond this weekend”…
“It is a strange one, and I suppose every person in the game has a team or a stadium that they particularly do well against, and mine happens to be Liverpool at Anfield,” he smiled.
“I have to admit that I have had a little bit of luck there before, winning as a player and as a manager, and against Liverpool I think you need that.”
“For some strange reason my record is decent there. Why that is I really don’t know – I can’t put my finger on it.
“I know how tough it is there though, trust me, it is one of the toughest places to o not just in England but in Europe.”
He also added: “The guys who have performed for me there before have deserved the credit, and hopefully the lads here will be getting the same headlines this weekend too.”
