Overview

Liverpool welcome FA Cup runners up Hull City to Anfield on Saturday. The Reds are coming into this game following a sound thrashing by Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Brendan Rodgers will demand an immediate response from his team following their disappointing performance against the reigning European champions at Anfield.

The Liverpool boss is still missing main striker Daniel Sturridge, but Mario Balotelli could also be dropped owing to poor performances in recent matches. The Italian striker has found life difficult in the Premier League and has come in for some heavy criticism following the mid-week game.

Rickie Lambert might get the nod, or Rodgers might prefer to stick with Raheem Sterling upfront with Adam Lallana coming into the midfield.

Hull City

Meanwhile, Hull City come into this game on the back of a solid performance against Arsenal last Saturday. They were very close to causing an upset until Danny Welbeck scored the equaliser in the 90th minute.

However, there was a downside to the game, as Hull lost a few players to injury during and prior to the game. Nikica Jelavich, Michael Dawson and goalkeeper Steve Harper picked up injuries and are out for the visit to Anfield. Tom Huddlestone is also doubtful for the game.

Steve Bruce, will hope that his squad can cope with the number of injuries and still put in a credible performance against the Premier League big guns. The Tigers boss will be aware that Liverpool, who are hurting from the midweek defeat can be a dangerous side but on the other hand, Hull can put pressure and take advantage of their lack of confidence.

Stat of the Match: The Tigers have conceded 30 goals in their nine visits to Anfield.

What Managers Say

Brendan Rodgers: "It needs to be better, that's for sure -- as a team, not just the defence and goalkeeper. As a team we need to be better. We all pride ourselves on clean sheets but we need to more competitive and aggressive in those moments as a team."

Steve Bruce: "Tom Huddlestone and Andy Robertson a concern. It's typical. We've been riding along nicely and all of a sudden we've got four or five. It's inevitable. We simply have to cope with it and hope the squad's big enough and strong enough."
