Hull 2-0 Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp is sitting on a wall next to the dugout. He looks completely dejected.

For all Liverpool have dominated possession, you can't fault Hull. They have been disciplined and organised and got a result.  

Liverpool are feeling the pace. There are a lot of leggy players out there.

Hull 2-0 Liverpool

Marco Silva take a bow. The Portuguese has transformed Hull's fortunes and confidence is growing they can stay up - especially after this.

CLOSE!

Hull 2-0 Liverpool

Brilliant finger-tip save by Eldin Jakupovic to deny Jordan Henderson. Five minutes of added time.

Hull 2-0 Liverpool

Two minutes of normal time remaining. No one in the home sections is leaving. They have dreamed about day like this.

'How have Hull scored?'

Dion Dublin

Former Leicester and Man Utd forward on Final Score

I don't know how Hull have scored. Liverpool are attacking, at the edge of Hull's box. One pass beats the entire team. Dreadful defending.

Hull have been terrible all season, but the new manager has turned them around, and all of their big players are performing.

GOAL - Hull 2-0 Liverpool

Oumar Niasse

Hull are in dreamland. And just to rub salt into Liverpool's wounds, on-loan Everton forward Oumar Niasse is the scorer as the striker keeps his composure after being put clean through.

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Still no sign of a Liverpool goal. This has been dreadful from the Reds. Divock Origi is getting ready to come on.

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

James Milner skies an effort well over the Hull bar. Jurgen Klopp is really not happy and shouts something in the player's direction. Milner shouts something back at Klopp. The Liverpool dressing room is going to be lively after this game.

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Chris Waddle is spot on. This has been very poor by Liverpool. Time is running out for the Reds.

For all of the possession Liverpool have had one or two chances but overall Hull have defended very well. Liverpool have not really hurt Hull.

CLOSE!

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Liverpool need a goal. Daniel Sturridge is on for Emre Can. Philippe Coutinho wastes another chance to equalise after pinball inside the Hull area. Hull have everyone back defending.

Why didn't Liverpool sign anyone in January? They obviously needed to freshen things up. So frustrating to see this after such a good start to the season.

Great counter-attack again by Hull. Hernandez's first touch just lets him down at times.

CLOSE!

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Is that the turning point? Liverpool's defence is sliced wide open and Abel Hernandez is clean through with only Simon Mignolet to beat. The Liverpool keeper redeems himself with a fine save.

SUBSTITUTION

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Seventeen-year-old Josh Tymon is on for Hull. What a moment for the teenager. Off goes Evandro.

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Liverpool have forced 10 corners. They haven't been able to find the net from any of them. The last time they failed to score in a Premier League match? Away to Southampton on 19 November. Half an hour to go.

It is all Liverpool. I am surprised Klopp hasn't brought on Origi or Strurridge - or even both!

GREAT SAVE!

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Terrific finger-tip save by Eldin Jakupovic to keep out Sadio Mane's header which came off Andrew Roberton and was heading for the net. Liverpool are hunting in numbers.

Chris Waddle

Hull just can't get out of their own half. They need to get their foot on the ball.

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Liverpool are bossing possession and Hull are defending in numbers. James Milner fires a tame effort towards a grateful Jakupovic. No conviction about that attempt whatsoever. Powder puff. Sums Liverpool up today.

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

A mighty scramble inside the Hull area after a corner. Joel Matip forces another corner before Emre Can's glancing header sees Eldin Jakupovic make a low diving save.

That is Liverpool's first chance on target.

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp sent his players out a good two minutes before Hull's players emerged. Jurgen Klopp is scowling. He looks angry. Very angry.

KICK-OFF - Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Will Liverpool have a shot on target? We're back under way.

'Terrible marking'

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Chris Waddle

Ex-England winger, BBC Radio 5 live

Terrible marking by Liverpool.

Mignolet could have done a lot better. He should have punched it at least.

You can't say Hull haven't deserved it.

Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Liverpool are unbeaten against the Premier League's top six this season.

Yet they have lost to Burnley, Bournemouth and Swansea in the league. They have serious work to do if they are to avoid defeat by Hull.

HALF-TIME - Hull 1-0 Liverpool

No shots on target and trailing struggling Hull...a first half to forget for Liverpool.

GOAL - Hull 1-0 Liverpool

Alfred N'Diaye

What is Simon Mignolet doing? Struggling Hull take the lead after the Liverpool keeper drops the ball on the boot of debutant Alfred N'Diaye who taps home. That was a gift. Mignolet should have been more forceful.

Hull 0-0 Liverpool

The irony for Hull is that this is one of their more impressive first-half displays of the season. Yet Sunderland now lead Crystal Palace 2-0 and Hull are anchored at the bottom of the table.

Hull 0-0 Liverpool

James Milner marks his 50th league appearance for Liverpool with a yellow card after a deliberate handball 25 yards from Simon Mignolet's goal. The free-kick is shocking. No other word for it.

Where's Lallana?

Hull 0-0 Liverpool

Chris Waddle

Ex-England winger, BBC Radio 5 live

We have not mentioned Adam Lallana's name yet.

He is having a really quiet game. He's hardly had a touch of the ball.

Hull 0-0 Liverpool

Liverpool corner. It falls invitingly for Joel Matip but he can't keep his header on target. The story of Liverpool's half.

Hull 0-0 Liverpool

Hull have carried on from where they left off at Manchester United in midweek. Marco Silva has turned the Tigers into a well-drilled, well-organised side.

Mark Taylor: Liverpool's problem is that four weeks ago they had average players with confidence and now they just have average players.

Jim Campion: I have one word for Klopp! Sturridge! We can't score! He should be starting! How is he going to get better if he doesn't play!

Hull 0-0 Liverpool

Beautiful shimmy from Sadio Mane. Signs that Liverpool are starting to threaten but they are lacking cutting edge. Eldin Jakupovic has yet to make a serious save.

Liverpool are very narrow. 

The front three are basically holding hands.

They are relying on the full-backs for width. It is not easy for them. It takes 60, 70 yard runs every time.

YELLOW CARD

Hull 0-0 Liverpool

Sadio Mane is taken out by Harry Maguire out wide close to the penalty area. It's a yellow card all day long. No complaints at all from the home side. The free-kick comes to nothing.

Hull 0-0 Liverpool

Goals are flying in in the other five 15:00 GMT kick-offs. And it's bad news for Hull, who started the day 19th. They are currently bottom of the table as Sunderland lead at Crystal Palace.
