Brendan Rodgers will be glad to be back on familiar turf for the visit of Hull City on Wednesday. Starting in top spot on Christmas day, two back-to-back 2-1 defeats to Manchester City and then Chelsea have the Merseyside club drop down to fifth.

Another positive for Liverpool is that they welcome back inspirational captain Steven Gerrard. I think his return and the recent history between the two sides in this fixture will have the Liverpool fans expecting a win.

The last trip Hull made to Liverpool in the league ended in a 6-1 defeat, and in the previous game to that, they went up 2-0 only to finish the game 2-2.

For Steve Bruce, he will be expecting his side to give a good showing and although I do not expect them to win, I also do not expect a 6-1 defeat. If Hull can get out of Anfield with a point, then I think you have to say it is a good job done.

Liverpool, despite having Gerrard back, are still without Daniel Sturridge, Jose Enrique, Joe Allen, Mamadou Sakho and Sebastian Coates. Jon Flanagan is doubtful and the depth of the squad was shown on Saturday when the young 19-year-old winger Brad Smith had to come on at Chelsea.

On the other hand, Hull City are pretty much unscathed from the hectic schedule with Sone AlukoRobbie Brady and Stephen Quinn the only guys missing. If Liverpool were to not win this game, then I think you can officially cancel their room in May at the Cavern Club; they will no longer need it for their Premiership Champions party!
