Wins against Leicester City and Chelsea in their last couple of Premier League outings have given Liverpool reason to be confident. Jürgen Klopp's side are still five points and as many places adrift of league leaders Manchester City, but they'll still be more than content with the promise they've shown in their first few games. They'll be looking to carry that into this weekend's encounter with newly promoted Hull City at Anfield.
The Tigers have so far defied predictions of a embarrassingly poor return to the top flight, and sit up in 12th place after the first five matches. However, having started the season with back-to-back victories, they've picked up only one point since. If they're not able to arrest their slide, they're sure to be sucked into a very long and difficult scrap against relegation.
Liverpool are waiting on the fitness of Daniel Sturridge and Georginio Wijnaldum for this match, while Hull City will still be without six players: Allan McGregor, Michael Dawson, Moses Odubajo, Alex Bruce and Brian Lenihan are all sidelined with injuries. Hull pulled off a surprise victory when these sides last met back in April of last year, though that wasn't enough to prevent them being relegated a few weeks later.
