Sources: Mario Balotelli set to keep place in Liverpool lineup vs. Hull

Ian Darke and Santi Solari give their take on Mario Balotelli swapping shirts with Pepe at half-time of the Champions League match between Liverpool and Real Madrid.

Mario Balotelli is set to be given another chance to prove he can be a success in Liverpool's attack when Hull visit Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday, sources say.

Balotelli's long-term future with the Reds is in doubt just two months after he arrived from AC Milan on a three-year contract.

In a media briefing to national newspaper reporters on Thursday, manager Brendan Rodgers indicated that the Italy international could be sold as early as January if his form did not improve.

Under-fire striker Mario Balotelli's spell in the headlines has helped deflect attention from Liverpool's real problem but manager Brendan Rodgers knows that is something which cannot be ignored.

The Reds have kept just one clean sheet in their last 18 matches and a summer overhaul of the defence has not rectified an increasingly worrying issue.

Bruce will need to ride out Hull City's injury storm

Hull City manager Steve Bruce laments his team's inability to finish off opponents following Danny Welbeck's stoppage-time equaliser to earn Arsenal a draw on Saturday.

If the strength of a squad is best assessed during times of adversity, Hull City's acid test is about to begin. A 2-2 draw at Arsenal last weekend was terrific, but that 10th point of the season came at a heavy cost. Michael Dawson, Nikica Jelavic and Steve Harper will all miss at least a month through injuries collected at the Emirates Stadium.

All three players would almost certainly have started at Liverpool on Saturday had they been fit. Dawson and Jelavic, in particular, have become two of...

Hull's Maynor Figueroa returns to Wigan on one-month loan deal

Maynor Figueroa played at the 2014 World Cup.

Full-back Maynor Figueroa has returned to Wigan on a one-month loan deal from Hull.

The 31-year-old Honduras international played 200 times for the Latics and won an FA Cup winners' medal during a five-year spell before he left for Hull in 2013 after Wigan were relegated.

Figueroa was a regular fixture for Hull under former Wigan boss Steve Bruce last season but has yet to appear in a top-flight contest this term.

The defender was selected in manager Uwe Rosler's Wigan starting line-up for Tuesday...
