Liverpool's problem of scoring at Anfield once again cost them dearly as they were held to a goalless draw by a resolute Stoke.
After a forgettable first half things improved slightly but Dirk Kuyt missed two headed chances in the final 15 minutes as the Potters went home with a deserved point.
For Liverpool it was a seventh home draw in 11 Barclays Premier League matches.
