Pulis praises Stoke response

Stoke boss Tony Pulis saluted the confidence and character within his side as they responded to an early setback to secure a 3-1 victory over Liverpool.

The visitors took the lead through a Steven Gerrard penalty awarded after just 32 seconds after Ryan Shawcross had pulled back Luis Suarez.

Two Jon Walters goals, either side of a Kenwyne Jones header, secured all three points for the Potters and lifted them above Liverpool in the Premier League table.

"It was a great result and performance," Pulis said. "I thought the response after going a goal behind after just 30 seconds was absolutely fantastic and epitomises what the group are about at the moment.

"We've played games where we've created more chances and finished 0-0 so we have been creating the chances but not been taking them.

"We have tremendous respect for Liverpool and we are very proud to host a game against such a great club and when you beat them it gives you great delight, it is always special."

Walters' second, controlling a flick-on from Jones on his chest and volleying past Pepe Reina, was the pick of the goals and took him level with Ricardo Fuller as the club's all-time leading Premier League scorer with 18.

"It was a great finish and I am very pleased for Walts," Pulis added. "His commitment to the group is fabulous and he is a good player as well."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
