Hull host a Liverpool side desperate for a top four finish, after their goalless draw against West Brom on Saturday.
Liverpool dominated for large spells of Saturday’s trip to The Hawthorns, but failed to make the breakthrough against a resolute West Brom team.
The draw may have ended Brendan Rodgers’ side’s top four hopes just a week after their FA Cup semi-final exit at the hands of Aston Villa. However, Everton’s 3-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday means that they could cut their deficit to the top four to just four points with a win at Hull on Tuesday.
With just five games to play, failure to win will most likely see them miss the Champions League boat.
The weekend’s score line was a disappointment to Brendan Rodgers and his players, but Croatian central defender Dejan Lovren is already looking ahead to Hull and an opportunity to claim victory.
“We’re disappointed that we couldn’t get the three points,” Lovren said.
“It was difficult after the game against Aston Villa. Everyone was dreaming that we would win the trophy, and we lost.
“Of course it was difficult. But we knew that we needed to move on and we were preparing well all week. Now we need to focus on the game on Tuesday against Hull City.
“It will be a typical game. We’ll need to be patient again and wait for our opportunities to score. Hopefully we’ll get the three points”
Hull, by contrast, picked up a confidence-boosting 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday thanks to a double by Dame N’Doye. It was their first Premier League victory since February and the result moved them a point clear of the relegation zone.
The Tigers have struggled for goals this season but have managed to score in each of their last four home games. They are, however, facing a tough fixture with matches against Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester United all to come.
“We have got four out of five at home against big teams. We know we need to get a result against one of them and the Burnley game looks huge,” manager Steve Bruce said, following the win at Selhurst Park.
“We’re at home, we have got to try and produce a result I know we’re capable of.”
David Meyler is available to Bruce after serving the final game of his ban at Palace, but Curtis Davies, Andrew Robertson and Mohamed Diame are doubtful.
Rodgers, remains frustrated by Daniel Sturridge’s injury-ravaged campaign, with the England striker once again set to miss out due to a hip injury.
