Hull Stun Liverpool

Hull City pulled off a historic first win over Liverpool in their history at the KC Stadium when they overcame the Reds 3-1 in their Premier League clash.

The first real threat at goal happened for the visitors as they broke on the right through Raheem Sterling, the teenager looked up and spotted Luis Saurez in space but his square ball was behind the Uruguayan striker.

With just 20 minutes on the clock the hosts took the lead, former Tottenham Hotspurs player Jake Livermore scoring his first goal for Hull City after dispossessing Victor Moses in midfield, playing a neat one-two with Egyptian Elmohamady before firing shot which took a huge deflection before wrong-footing Simon Mignolet in the Liverpool goal.

The Reds though responded straight away through captain fantastic Steven Gerard who slotted home a 27th minute free-kick to make it 1-1 at the KC Stadium.

The scores were level going into the half-time break but Steve Bruce’s men seemed to grow in stature as the game went on.

Brendan Rodger’s men should have taken the lead with 70 minutes on the clock when Nigerian international Moses got on the end of a Coutinho cross but smashed his volley straight at Allan McGregor in the Hull goal.

The Tigers then took a shock lead as they pressed forward and displayed a promising second-half performance when David Meyler was given room at the edge of the box, and fired the home side into a 2-1 lead in the 72nd minute.

The home side then sealed a historic victory when Martin Skrtel headed a Tim Huddlestone effort into his own net to make it 3-1.

The result means that Liverpool are now seven points adrift of Premier League leaders Arsenal and moves Hull up into the top half of the table.
