Hull surprised everyone with a 2:0 victory away from home last Saturday evening against Crystal Palace. It was only their third victory on the road, as the team showed that they can not be overwritten in a relegation battle and that they will probably be battling hard till the very end for every possible point, even against the strongest sides.
Their striker N’Doye was the star of the previous game, as he netted both goals, in 51st and 90th minute with the players of Hull being much more concrete side during the whole game. From the first moment till the end, they looked like much more willing to fight, were making much more goalscoring chances and simply deserved this victory as if it was playing team with much better reputation. Anyhow, the team is now a point ahead of relegating placed Sunderland, being in a situation to look for points wherever possible. Midfielder David Meyler (24/1) is suspended for this game, while coach Steve Bruce probably won’t change much after satisfying performance in previos game. Injured remain forward Nikica Jelavic (22/8), central defender Curtis Davies (21/0) and left back Andrew Robertson (21/0).
Liverpool, on the other side, comes from a goalless draw against West Brom on Saturday evening, once again being limited to quite poor performance in offense. Even though the Reds had much more of the ball possession, their efforts somehow didn’t look that serious, while the team also lacked class in final touch in these situations that were serious enough.
Probably previously played match and exclusion from FA Cup in semi-finals against Aston Villa six days earlier haven’t been the best possible introduction into this game and it somehow was obvious that the team atmosphere isn’t at the best level. The team now has only one victory in last four matches in Premier League, as they lost the touch with Champions League tickets battle, but now are only one point away from seventh placed Southampton that is out of European tickets. Left midfielder/left back Alberto Moreno (26/2) missed the game against West Brom and is a doubt here, while the Reds surely miss central defender Mamadou Sakho (17/0), defensive midfielder Lucas Leiva (16/0) and forward Daniel Sturridge (14/4).
I simply can’t see high goalscoring game, far from it. Liverpool is stronger, but they have obvious problems upfront, while Hull will probably try to defend here and only try on counters, as long as they have a goalless game here, which I believe would be a positive result for the hosts.
