Kuyt highlights the Anfield factor

Dirk Kuyt says Liverpool can beat anyone at home and have started to find their stride ahead of this weekend’s Premier League meeting with Hull City at Anfield.

Despite losing their long unbeaten home run to Aston Villa, the Reds have bounced back and now go looking for their fourth consecutive league victory.

“Apart from the Villa match, I think we have shown that we can beat any side at Anfield this season,” Kuyt told the club’s official web site. “We had difficulties last season with all the draws but now we are able to score goals in the first-half.

“It’s really important to score as early as possible because then it will be more difficult for them and easier for us.

“We know the Barclays Premier League is one of the hardest leagues in the world and every team is good with some fine players.

“I believe Hull are a good team as well but we have to look at our own strengths and we must believe we can beat them. We must focus on ourselves and respect the opponent.

“We didn’t start that well and have already lost twice. But we have now started to win a couple of games in a row and we want to keep that going, beginning with Hull on Saturday.”

Liverpool vs Hull City gets underway at 3pm on Saturday, 26th September.
