History of the Hull City v Liverpool fixture

Hull City prepare to entertain Liverpool at The KC Stadium on Sunday afternoon, hoping to break their duck against the visitors. There have only been 2 against the opposition from the 7 matches played by the The Tigers.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The KC Stadium was just last season, in April 2009, as the visitors ran out cosy 1-3 winners in a Premier League match.

Recent respective form guides

Hull City's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Tigers have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Liverpool's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. A generous 7 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Hull City are stuck down in the relegation zone of Barclays Premier League with a return of just 29 points from their 37 games thus far. Liverpool lie just outside the playoff positions in the Barclays Premier League, picking up 62 from their 37 games so far.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the The Tigers at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Reds come away with an easy victory. Away win
