In the latest Stoke news, coach Paul Lambert insists his side are ready to give everything in their final three Premier League games as they try to climb out of the relegation zone.
The Potters look to be in a dangerous position after only picking up 29 points from 35 league games. Former boss Mark Hughes was sacked at the start of January but Lambert has been unable to improve the club’s fortunes.
His side have won just once since the start of January and they have lost four of their last seven matches.
They travel to Anfield on Saturday to take on Champions League challengers Liverpool before meeting Crystal Palace and Swansea City.
While some fans have started to give up, Lambert insists his players will not stop until it is mathematically impossible to survive.
He told Sky Sports: “They have given me absolutely everything that’s in their bodies. I’ve asked them to do things and they’ve done it.
“We’re still in the fight. I’ve never really had a problem to pick them up – I really haven’t.
“We had a chat to see how they felt and, regarding their attitude and everything I’ve asked them to do, there’s no way I can ask for any more.
“It’s not as if we’re sitting here and we’re out of the game and we’re going out of the league.
“We know it’s difficult and we have to throw everything at it that we possibly can, but if we can take this right to the last day then we’ll take it.”
Stoke are 15/2 to beat Liverpool with bet365.
