Liverpool Blow Champions League in Hull City Loss


Liverpool blew an opportunity to maintain their Champions League challenge in the UK football results last night (Tuesday 28 April). Entering last weekend, Liverpool knew that they could be at least three points closer to Man Utd if they won both games.

Of course, the weekend did not start off well when Liverpool had to accept a 0-0 draw away at West Brom. Fortunately for manager Brendan Rodgers, though, Man Utd would lose 3-0 to Everton on Sunday.

That gave Liverpool an opportunity to win against Hull City on Tuesday to move four points behind Man Utd. However, Liverpool lost 1-0 away to Hull on Tuesday night and the gap remains at seven points. Man Utd are all but assured of Champions League qualification.

Liverpool held 69% possession and had nine shots on target in a game where Hull defender Michael Dawson headed the winning goal from a corner after 36 minutes.
