Stoke City defender Erik Pieters is determined to avenge the clubs loss in his first outing for the Potters.

The Dutch left-back, who joined from PSV Eindhoven in the summer, experienced a 1-0 loss to Liverpool on opening day and is hoping he can be a part of a reverse result when the Reds travel to the Britannia Stadium on Sunday.

"I made my debut at Anfield and it was an enjoyable experience, apart from the result of course," Pieters told the club's official website.

"We want to get our revenge, because the defeat still leaves a little bit of a sour taste in our mouths, having missed a last minute penalty to earn a point.

"We have a strong record at home though and we will want to defend that, so I'm looking forward to Sunday's game, and hopefully getting the three points on the board."
