Liverpool host Hull City at Anfield with the Reds looking to make a comeback after losing two on the trot against Chelsea and Manchester City.

Where to Watch

Kick-off is set for 3pm GMT. Highlights of the game will be available on BBC Match of the Day from 10:50 pm GMT on BBC One.


Liverpool have had to endure a tough period in the league, losing two consecutive away fixtures and suddenly find themelves six points behind league leaders Arsenal.

A loss here can put them out of the top six and Brendan Rodgers will be hoping that his players are able to shrug aside their fatigue and come back into the mix for the Premier league trophy.

Rodgers has been very open about his loathing for the refereeing decisions that have affected his team' chances over the past two games. A wrongly given offside decision stripped Liverpool of a draw against City while the Reds had a legitimate call for a penalty turned down against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The former Swansea man will hope that his players do not ponder over the same and come in with full gusto and put in a performance to be proud of against a resurgent Hull City. However, with the fixtures piling up, Rodgers will be worried about his players' fitness with a lot of injuries currently having a detrimental effect on his team's composition.

Meanwhile, Hull City come into the game on the back of a 6-0 thrashing of Fulham and will be looking to replicate their performance from when the two teams met last time at the KC Stadium where they beat the Premier League giants 3-1. A win here for Hull will keep their dream alive of a finish in the top half but a loss will make sure that Steve Bruce keeps his eyes open for the condition in the bottom of the table.

What the Managers Say

Brendan Rodgers: "It's just been unfortunate. The medical team -- aligned with our training philosophy -- have ensured the players have been fit for the majority of the time I've been here. It's just really in this last period of four or five weeks, which have unfortunately dealt us a big blow."

Steve Bruce: "It's been a great 2013 for us all. We had a difficult run to promotion but we got there and now we've bounced into the Premier League with 23 points from 19 games," Bruce said. "Can we go and repeat that now and make sure we're here for another year? I'll not be a happy man until we've managed that."
