Michael Dawson beat the offside trap towards the end of the first half to help Hull in their fight against relegation and place further pressure on Brendan Rodgers.

Dawson kept onside by Mario Balotelli

Prior to kick off the reds made a change from the side that drew at West Brom - Joe Allen replacing Steven Gerrard who wasn't named in the 18 man squad.

The reds continued to use Mario Balotelli up front on his own in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Hull started the brighter - Simon Mignolet called in to action to make a save from the head of Jake Livermore.  At the other end the reds were trying to move the ball about quickly but too often gave the ball away at crucial moments.  Coutinho had a couple of chances - including a half volley from a Henderson corner.

It was Michael Dawson who broke the deadlock in the game late on in the first half. The reds attempted to clear a ball but Elmohamady sent a cross back in.  Three Hull players were in an offside position, but Dawson wasn't as he headed past Mignolet.

Liverpool fumbled through the rest of the half with Balotelli missing a great chance just before the half time whistle.

The second half was equally uninspiring - Rodgers eventually making changes to personnel in the 65th minute.  Mario was hauled off, as was Ibe and Lambert and Lallana were sent on.

The change had little impact, and later on Markovic was sent on for Lovren in an attempt to inspire the reds into some more attacking play.  It didn't work.

Liverpool's season reaches new depths and the end of the season can't come quick enough.

As Brendan Rodgers would probably say 'Outstanding'.

  1. You sack a quaterback, you sack a town or village, you do not “sack” a person from a job, you FIRE them. Its not english its American and you have to make certain FSG understand what your saying

    • Sack for dismissal is a very old english term. Grammar lesson over now the footie.
      Surely there can be no remaining confidence in BR or the transfer committee to take LFC to being a CL regular?
