Cameron ready for Liverpool challenge

Geoff Cameron is confident Stoke can build on last weekend's victory against Swansea when they travel to Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend.

The 27-year-old midfielder made his fourth start in a Potters shirt in the 2-0 victory at the Britannia Stadium last Saturday, earning the home side their first three points of the season.

Brendan Rodgers' Reds also recorded their first win with an emphatic 5-2 victory against Norwich City at Carrow Road, so both teams will be looking to build momentum when they meet at Anfield on Sunday.

"I think it was a big win for us," Cameron told Sky Sports. "Obviously we played some tough teams before, so to finally get the three points at home is a big step and it gives us momentum going into the Liverpool game.

"They won too so we've both got some momentum. With them playing at home they obviously have the fans behind them and will want to continue from their result."

The USA international sees similarities between the two teams - Swansea and Liverpool - which is understandable considering Rodgers swapped the Liberty Stadium for Merseyside less than three months ago. But, that doesn't mean last week's success will make it an easy ride at Anfield.

"I think there are similar styles between Swansea and Liverpool, and I think we frustrated Swansea," he continued. "We cannot expect Liverpool to be exactly the same as them, but there are definitely similarities.

"We have to go there with the frame of mind that we can beat them. Every team is beatable, but it's just a matter of how well we execute our game plan.

"Against Swansea we had some pretty good possession too - we controlled it at the back and had some good possession in midfield, so I think we can do that on Sunday."

Cameron joined Stoke from Houston Dynamo in the summer, for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £2million, signing a two-year deal to 2014.
