Liverpool were denied a moral-boosting win when Robert Huth grabbed a late Stoke equaliser in the 1-1 draw at the Britannia Stadium.
The visitors had led from the 57th minute when Sotirios Kyrgiakos scrambled the ball home.
But in the 89th minute, Stoke's relentless pressure paid off when Huth scored at the far post after Liverpool failed to deal with a corner. Dirk Kuyt could have won it with a header against a post in the final seconds of injury-time.
