Superstitious Liverpool fans should be fearful of this omen ahead of their game with Stoke

Not again...


Brendan Rodgers should avoid all cracks on footpaths and make sure no black cats cross his path ahead of the opening day of the new season.


Because it seems that the gods, or at least the Premier League gods, have already cast the dye on how their game with Stoke is going to pan out.

You may recall that Liverpool got whipped 6-1 on the final day of the season by Stoke as their disastrous campaign ended with one of the club’s worst ever defeats.

And now the man in black that day, referee Anthony Taylor, has been given his opening game assignment which just happens to be back at the Britannia for the game against the same team.

Liverpool fans, fearful of omens and all that, should probably be concerned – any time Taylor is in charge of the Reds’ games, things don’t seem to turn out so well.

He took charge of the 4-1 thrashing at Arsenal and 2-1 home defeat to Chelsea last term, as well as the  1-0 win at Burnley and 0-0 derby stalemate with Everton at Goodison Park.
