Losing to Reading in the FA Cup was not what Rafael Benitez hoped for but at least Liverpool now can concentrate on Premier League and the vital 4th place they need so badly. However things seem to go from worse to worse. In the match Stoke versus Liverpool at Britannia Stadium 12.45 GMT a Liverpool team, without Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres and Yossi Benayoun who are all injured, will be fighting an uphill battle getting their act together without their super stars available.
