The Premier League is back for a mid-week run of fixtures, and we look to take the opportunity to try and sneak in a few winners tonight.
England Premier League
Liverpool to beat Hull City @ 2.00 (Bet365) – 2 points
Liverpool will not have Daniel Sturridge up front, and will rely on the Markovic, Balotelli and Borini up front in order to help on their scoring efforts. With Sterling, Henderson, Coutinho all in great form coming into this game, I expect Liverpool will put on a top performance to find the back of the net. Defensively Liverpool have improved in recent weeks and a solid performance from their defense will be needed in order for them to continue a good run towards the end of the season. They kept a solid clean sheet last time around against West Brom, but could not find the back of the net in order for them to secure a victory.
Hull played out of their skin last time around as they aimed for survival in the Premier League. They put in a great show against Crystal Palace by winning with a 2-0 scoreline. However they played against a defense that had been conceding a lot of goals throughout the campaign already. Hull have struggled against decent teams so far this campaign like Chelsea, Southampton, West Ham, Arsenal, Man Utd by a decent goal margin; and Liverpool will think they would be able to put in a similar performance.
Liverpool now have Spurs and Southampton hot on their heels, and putting away this game in hand, will be the only way for them to keep distance and secure European football; and I expect them to do so against the defensively struggling Hull City.
