Hull City vs Liverpool Preview
Hull City has been winless in five of their last six matches as the team continues to be in the 19th spot of the 20-team English flight table. They have struggled all season and are still inside the bottom three relegation are where they are at risk of being demoted back to the Championship next season.
The Tigers had an impressive performance in the last round, though, as they held powerhouse team Manchester United to a 0-0 draw on the road at the Old Trafford last Wednesday, as per Metro.
Head coach Marco Silva’s squad was able to keep the Red Devils, who had big-name football superstars such as Zlatan Ibrahimović, Paul Pogba, and Wayne Rooney in their lineup to name a few, scoreless for the whole match.
However, Hull City failed to score any goals as well to settle for the tie and a share of a point in the overall standings. The draw was the second straight winless performance for the Tigers.
Meanwhile, Liverpool is also on a downward spiral lately with four consecutive winless games. As a result, the team has dropped to the fourth spot in the standings from second place, 10 points below league leaders Chelsea and one point behind Tottenham and Arsenal.
The Reds are coming off a 1-1 draw with the Blues last Tuesday at the Anfield, BBC Sport reported.
Chelsea defender David Luiz netted the first goal of the match in the 24th minute before Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum was able to find the equalizer in the 57th minute with a close-range goal.
Head coach Jürgen Klopp’s side is expected to bounce back from their recent struggles in this match versus Hull City.
