Hull of a chance to get back to winning ways

FOOTBALL: Liverpool will try to stop the bleeding and recover from back-to-back Premier League defeats against Hull at Anfield today.

Top at Christmas, the Reds have dropped to fifth after losses to Manchester City and Chelsea.

Hull will be full of confidence after crushing Fulham 6-0 at the weekend, but Anfield has not been a happy hunting ground for teams this season.

Liverpool has won eight of its nine home games, scoring 25 times in the process with Luis Suarez getting the lion's share.
