Hull City Vs Liverpool Preview: Team News, Predicted Lineups, Key Stats, Betting Odds, Prediction
Fresh from the stalemate against the Premier League leaders on Tuesday, Liverpool will be keen to end their winless run in the league this year. Jurgen Klopp’s men ended their three-match losing streak at home with a much-deserved as well a much-needed 1-1 draw against Antonio Conte’s side and will look to put in a similar performance when they play against Marco Silva’s men. However, they will have their task cut out against a side that has won and drawn against Manchester United in their last three games.
On the other hand, a resurgent Hull City will look to avenge the 5-0 loss they suffered at the hands of their much fancied opponents at Anfield earlier this season. The Tigers have shown signs of improvement under their new manager and will back themselves to get a point against the visitors who have struggled in the last few weeks.
Dieumerci Mbokani is available for selection after returning from national duty but Ahmed Elmohamady is still with his national team. New recruits Kamil Grosicki and Alfred N’Diaye are set to be a part of the squad while Andrea Ranocchia can also start after coming off the bench in the second half of his side’s goal-less draw at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, on-loan midfielder Lazar Markovic is unavailable for selection.
Eldin Jakupovic, David Meyler, Andrea Ranocchia, Harry Maguire, Andrew Robertson, Tom Huddlestone, Omar Elabdellaoui, Evandro, Sam Clucas, Josh Tymon, Oumar Niasse
