Liverpool vs Hull City

The moment has almost arrived.

The match that will show, if Liverpool have changed its ways.

Most fans would be more nervous for this game, than the one we had against Chelsea, and rightly so.

It’s been 8 or 9 years since a Gerrard double saved us a blush against the same opponents, to savage a point for us.

Kloop has boldly mentioned that our players have to play angrily against Hull at Anfield to get the 3 points, and let’s hope the crowd can do its part to cheer the players on from kick-off.

The starting line-up would be a familiar one, with the only tough one to call is whether Mignolet or Karius get the nod to start. Clyne Matip Lovren and Milner pick the defence itself, while in midfield, Henderson, Wijnaldum and Lallana should be starting, with Mane Sturridge and Firmino/Coutinho as the front three.

It is expected that Hull will sit deep and hit us on the counter, that we will have to be wary of, as well as their work-rate, with is second to none because of their team spirit. Thus, it is extremely crucial for us to start on the front foot right from kick-off, to pile the pressure with the ball circulating in their half, looking for openings.

An early goal will definitely help to settle the nerves, and hopefully it will lead to a comfortable victory.
