The Liver Bird at related • 2 views

"Sheer madness" that is the descriptive phrase Mark Lawrenson has selected after watching Liverpool lose 3-0 to Real Madrid. Surely a reaction like that can only be warranted by the poor defensive performance? No? ... No. Apparently it is "sheer madness" that Mario Balotelli would swap his shirt with an opposition player at half time, forgive me for thinking Lawro has pushed the 'overkill' button here.

10am ET, live in the US on NBC Sports Live Extra

Last four head-to-head:
2-0 Liverpool (h) 01.01.14
1-3 Hull (a) 12.01.13
0-0 (a) 05.09.10
6-1 Liverpool (h) 09.26.09

Last three matches:
Liverpool: 0-3 Real Madrid (h); 3-2 QPR (a); 2-1 West Brom (h)
Hull: 2-2 Arsenal (a); 2-0 Palace (h); 2-4 City (h)

Goalscorers (league):
Liverpool: Sterling 3; Gerrard 2; Coutinho, Henderson, Lallana, Moreno, Sturridge 1
Hull: Diame, Jelavic 4; Hernandez 3; Chester 1

Referee: Neil Swarbrick

Guess at a line-up:
Mignolet
Manquillo Skrtel Lovren Moreno
Gerrard
Henderson Allen
Coutinho
Sterling Lambert

It's just a guess, but I suspect Balotelli will be left on the bench after his performance against Real, and I don't know how I feel about this.
