PREM: Hull v Liverpool preview


Hull v Liverpool preview

Liverpool will look to end their worst winless league run under Jurgen Klopp when they visit revitalised Hull City.


Klopp's men have won only one of their nine games in all competitions this year and are without a victory in their last four league outings, which has dented their title challenge.

There were signs of improvement during the 1-1 draw with Chelsea in midweek, but that result kept them 10 points off Antonio Conte's league leaders.

Liverpool beat Hull City 5-1 in the corresponding fixture at Anfield earlier this season, registering 32 shots to Hull's two.

However, new Tigers boss Marco Silva has won all three of his home games in charge across all competitions since replacing Mike Phelan in January.

New boys Kamil Grosicki and Alfred N'Diaye will both feature in Hull's squad.

Andrea Ranocchia is also pushing for his first start for the Tigers after coming off the bench in the second half of his side's goalless draw at Manchester United in midweek.

Dieumerci Mbokani is available after returning from African Nations Cup duty but Ahmed Elmohamady is still absent and Lazar Markovic misses out against his parent club.

Forward Sadio Mane is set for his first Liverpool start since January 2.

The forward, who returned from the African Nations Cup earlier in the week, came off the bench against Chelsea on Tuesday but is now ready to go from the off.

Right-back Nathaniel Clyne continues to play with a rib injury but otherwise manager Jurgen Klopp has his strongest available squad.
