Liverpool host Hull City in the Premier League as the Reds look to make it three wins in a row and go towards making a credible challenge for the title. Jurgen Klopp's men have beaten Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City in their opening five games and are being seen as genuine challengers for the title with their performances.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 3pm BST. Radio commentary of the game will be on BBC Radio 5 Live. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10.30pm BST.


The Reds have played only one game thus far at home, beating Leicester City 4-1 following a brilliant performance up front by the likes of Philippe Coutinho and company, as they have bedded themselves quite well with the manager's high pressing system. Liverpool have scored 17 goals in all competitions thus far, extending their goal count against Derby County in the third round of the EFL Cup, where they beat them 3-0.

This is a massive upgrade from their start to the 2015/16 season, where they managed only three goals in their opening five games and they will back themselves to extend the tally against Hull City. Their win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge came on the back of some great closing down by Klopp's men and Jordan Henderson's strike earned them three crucial points against the title challengers.

Meanwhile, Hull come to the game on the back of a 4-1 thrashing by Arsenal in the league. Manager Mike Phelan has done a great job thus far, picking up seven points from their opening five games and know that Liverpool could falter against lower teams, having been beaten by Burnley.

Jake Livermore is back in contention for a start after serving a one-game ban for handling the ball inside the penalty box against the Gunners. He served his suspension in the third round of the EFL Cup, where they thrashed Stoke City to move into the next round. Hull are yet to lose an away game this season and will take heart from their performances this season.

What Managers Say

Jurgen Klopp: "We feel good, we feel strong and we love to work together. We need to be ready for each game, maximum concentrated, greedy, kind of angry, all of the stuff you need at the highest level of sport. We have to be angry against Hull because they want our points – that makes me angry so it's easy for me."

Mike Phelan: "Every game is a challenge and an opportunity to get something from. Saturday will be no different. Liverpool are firing on all cylinders this season, and it has all the ingredients of a fantastic football match. Hopefully we can learn from what happened in the Arsenal defeat (last weekend), take it into the match on Saturday and give Liverpool a game."
