Which leaves the door not fully open, but more slightly ajar for Liverpool, to maybe… just maybe, sneak into the top four. It’s a challenge though, you might even say, it’s a Hull of a task.
Liverpool go into tonight’s game with just one win from their last four league games, and defeat tonight would surely spell the end of Champions League football.
They really shot themselves in the foot with that 0-0 draw at the Hawthorns at the weekend. Rodgers may be spoofing on about how he is the only one who can manage Liverpool, but he was right when he said his players suffer from a lack of big game mentality. They’ve effectively got five cup finals coming up now so their sports psychologist must surely be working over time.
Their newest PFA Team of the Year member Coutinho, would want to show something special over these next five games as well.

If they can win at Hull however – Four games left, four points behind Van Gaal’s men, the battle for fourth…
Hull on the other hand played some lovely ball at Crystal Palace on Saturday and will be heading into tonight’s game hopeful of making sure of the Premier League survival. That was only their second away win this season. Worrying statistic that.
It sounds worse for Hull when you see that they sit just a point outside the bottom three and hand yet to face Arsenal, Spurs and Man United all after the Liverpool game.
Back in October this game was an absolute cracker, finishing, wait for it, 0-0. No goals mind, but there was 15 corners. The last three games between these two has given us six goals, a win for each team and a draw.
Let’s not beat around the bush here, both teams have been horrendous as of late, but now it’s squeeky bum time so somebody has to grab this game by the scruff of the neck. Hull are fighting for survival, and aside from playing Burnley, Liverpool may just give them their best hope of picking up three points. Liverpool NEED to win this game. Not just for their Champions League hopes, but also if Brendan Rodgers wants to hold onto his managerial title in Merseyside.
I’m looking forward to watching this one. Actually, hang on.
There is not one channel showing the game. None. NADA. The only game on TV tonight on no one is showing it. For shame.
Liverpool to win and Coutinho to score? 11/2. We’ll take that.
