It’s about time to get this horrible, horrible season over and done with, and the final stop for the Reds is to relegated Hull City this Sunday.
With the club’s future uncertain, this could signal the start of a few months of change at the club, both in personnel behind the scenes, and on the pitch.
Rafa Benitez is without the injured Fernando Torres, Martin Skrtel, Emiliano Insua and Fabio Aurelio and come off the back of a miserable week in which they crashed out of Europe to Atletico Madrid, before losing 2-0 to Chelsea in the Premier League.
Meanwhile Hull’s relegation from the league was confirmed as they were held 2-2 at Wigan on Monday afternoon.
Liverpool played some of their most impressive football of the season when the two teams met at Anfield back in September, running out 6-1 winners thanks to goals from Torres (3), Gerrard and Babel (2).
The Reds were winners at the KC Stadium in this fixture last season. Goals that day came from Xabi Alonso and Dirk Kuyt (2) in the 3-1 victory.
Liverpool can only hope to finish a maximum position of 6th in the league, with victory at Hull required and Blackburn to get at least a point at Aston Villa.
Kick-off is 4pm.
