Liverpool’s 2017 struggles continued last week, with a 2-0 loss to Hull. Saturday, they host Spurs in what is a crucial game for Liverpool’s top-4 hopes.

Despite a miscue that directly resulted in Hull’s first goal, Simon Mignolet will start in net for Liverpool. Neither Mignolet nor Loris Karius has had sustained success for the Reds between the pipes this year, but it should still be Mignolet’s job right now.

The team that officially knocked them out were London rivals Chelsea, in a brutally ugly affair that resulted in a violent fracas, a 2-2 draw and Spurs being mathematically eliminated. They then phoned it in from there and finished third in the league, as Arsenal leapfrogged them.
