English Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 24 September, 2016,

Venue: Anfield, Liverpool.
Liverpool are on a mission to take all three points when they host the newly promoted Hull City on Wednesday evening. Both the teams were involved in the mid-weeks League Cup competition and won their respective fixtures.
Liverpool are coming on the back of a 3-0 win over Derby County in the League Cup fixture, which marked their third straight competitive wins. They are also unbeaten in their last 5 matches in all competitions, scoring 15 goals against 3 conceded. The Reds are unbeaten in their last 9 home matches in the English Premier League.
Hull City strike in the last minute to knock out Stoke City in their mid-week fixture, which finished exactly as we predicted by a 2-1 correct score-line. Despite their mini success in the Cup competition, Hull are coming on the back of a three match win-less run in the Premier League with 2 losses and a draw. The Tigers are currently 12th in the table, just 4 points above the relegation zone.
