Hull boss Phil Brown claims Liverpool are the best side in the country - but is confident the Tigers can beat them on Saturday.
Rafael Benitez's Reds lead the Barclays Premier League heading into this weekend's clash at Anfield, and Brown has high regard for the work of the Spaniard.
The Tigers boss said: "It is a massive game - they are the best team in the country at the moment without a shadow of a doubt."
He added: "We are a million miles behind Liverpool, but that counts for nothing when the whistle goes.
"We will have a team capable of competing with Liverpool on a level playing field.
"We could go to Anfield with a fear factor and end up losing the game, but if you go with an away record like we have then we go full of confidence to take them on at their own game.
"I am not going to put 10 or 11 men behind the ball and try to bore them to death. I am going to try to play some football.
"Liverpool have got a resilience about them, and there is an expectancy that this is their year.
"But it is a big expectancy on their shoulders, and we hope with a bit of resilience on our part we can exploit that."
