Hull boss admires Reds

Hull City boss Phil Brown has publicly show his admiration of Rafa Benitez and Liverpool ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash between the two clubs at Anfield.

High-flying Hull face their toughest test yet as they go to the league leaders, having already taken three points at Arsenal earlier in the season.

Brown knows what challenge lies ahead and warned his players, “They are a great side, no doubt about it.

“To be so many points ahead of Manchester United and be ahead of Chelsea and Arsenal is a great achievement at this stage of the season.

“The fact that there were boos after a 0-0 draw shows you how much Liverpool have progressed in the last four or five years under Rafa Benitez.

“They have to be the best team in England at this moment in time, the league table doesn’t lie.

“The fact that they’re not playing particularly well but winning is the sign of a very good side ‘“ that was the case at Blackburn last week and they won 3-1.”
