Hull gained a valuable point from their trip to Manchester United on Wednesday and are now only four points adrift of safety.
Marco Silva’s side have started a horrible run of fixtures that will now see them host Liverpool before travelling to Arsenal next and they have already done well to get one point from this tricky spell.
Liverpool drew 1-1 with Chelsea on Tuesday night but have only won one of their last nine competitive matches and will have earmarked this fixture as a must win match in order to keep pace with their top 4 rivals.
They are now only in the top four on goal difference and will hope the return of Sadio Mane will kick start their season again.
Silva’s side did well to get a point from their trip to Old Trafford but it seems unthinkable they can get at least another here even if Liverpool are stuttering at the moment. It may not be easy for Liverpool, but an away win should be on the cards. NaijaBet
Hull – Lazar Markovic is ineligible to face off against his parent club but Hull do have deadline day signings Alfred N’Diaye and Kamil Grosicki available to make their debuts this weekend. Both may be eased into first-team action rather than handed debuts from the off here.
Liverpool– Sadio Mane was only fit enough to make the bench in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at home to Chelsea but could earn a recall to the starting XI when they face Hull this weekend. No other changes are expected from Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool are undefeated in 19 of their last 21 matches (Premier League).
There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Hull’s last 4 home games (Premier League).
