Highly speculative bet, I know, but Liverpool have a knack of losing to shite teams they really ough to beat. Remember they have lost at Bournemouth and Burnley this season, but their overall away stats are good (6-4-2).
Hull have had a lift after getting a new manager. Silva are doing a lot of good things with this club, one of them selling Snodgrass, imho. Hull look defenseively more sound now, and this is a typical bananaskin game for clubs like Liverpool.
Yes, Hull are fighting relegation, yes, Liverpool are in the CL spots, but in England, things can happen anytime, and we have seen bigger shocks than Hull eventually beating Liverpool at home.
Mane is back, and Couthino, Firmino, will also play, so Liverpool will feel buyoed. Form is poor though, and if they get 1-0 behind early on, who knows what will happen.
I think this will be a tight game, and with every chance of Hull knicking a late winner. 1-0? Low/minimal stakes, as it is highly speculative, but the odds on a Hull win is too high in my opinion.
