Time: Saturday, 3pm, Anfield

Liverpool midfielders Adam Lallana and Gini Wijnaldum are set to return.

The pair were rested for the midweek EFL Cup win over Derby, with striker Daniel Sturridge also sitting that out after missing training with a niggle which could put his place against the Tigers in doubt.

Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is expected to return, despite summer signing Loris Karius making his competitive debut and keeping a clean sheet against the Rams.

Hull midfielder Jake Livermore returns to contention following suspension.

Livermore, a makeshift centre-half in the Tigers’ first five league games, missed the midweek EFL Cup win at Stoke due to a one-game ban and caretaker boss Mike Phelan must decide whether to recall him or retain Harry Maguire alongside skipper Curtis Davies.

New signings Ryan Mason, Markus Henriksen, David Marshall, Will Keane, James Weir and Dieumerci Mbokani all started on Wednesday night and will be hoping to make their first league starts.
