We speak to a Hull City supporter to get his views ahead of Saturday’s game — and he isn’t pleased to see Sadio Mane back for the Reds!
The two sides do battle at the KCOM Stadium, with one still harbouring faint hopes of a title challenge and the other fighting for survival.
These are the type of games that have been Liverpool’s Achilles heel this season, and they must kick on after Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea.
Hull showed what they are capable of with a 0-0 draw at Man United, as they continue to improve under impressive new manager Marco Silva.

You sit 19th in the Premier League, but there must be some optimism after Marco Silva’s appointment. What have you made of him?
It’s early days but I’ve been very impressed with what he’s done in just a few weeks with our ravaged squad. In fairness to Mike Phelan, we were playing some nice stuff anyway but Silva has taken it on a level.
Our centre-backs are playing way up the field, sometimes in the opposition half, the wingers are pushed way up and we’re playing forward passes more often.
He’s changed the system to a 4-2-3-1, which gives cover for the back-four but has increased the options for defenders passing out of defence, so we’re going side to side more often.
