It was an unforgettable Boxing Day for Tigers fans as half a dozen second half strikes thumped the sorry Cottagers.
It was three points that saw Steve Bruce’s side rise into the top half of the Premier League table and I’ve been really impressed by Hull of late.
Bruce had previously witnessed his team race into a two-goal lead against Manchester United on their penultimate start, before succumbing to a typical comeback from the champions, but they can cause the best problems and will head west full of confidence.
It’s tight at the top but Liverpool’s defensive frailties look like costing them dear and they find it almost impossible to keep clean sheets.
It is just two shutouts for Simon Mignolet in goal in his past 16 top flight matches and nobody in the top six has conceded more goals than Liverpool.
With Luis Suarez in their ranks the Reds are always fancied to outscore the majority of their opponents but injuries are taking their toll and this New Year’s Day assignment might not be a straightforward one.
Hull have faced some really tricky away fixtures to date without enjoying much luck on the road but points gained from 1-1 draws at Swansea and West Brom on their last two starts have been encouraging and Bruce will surely tell his men to go for it.
It is six consecutive wins for Liverpool at Anfield, scoring at least three goals on each occasion, but only one was been accompanied by a clean sheet and evens about both teams to score appeals greatly.
