Liverpool win 3-1 at Hull

April 25, 2009 22:06 IST

Liverpool battled to a 3-1 victory at 10-man Hull City on Saturday to keep the pressure on Manchester United at the top of the English Premier League.

Two second-half goals by Dirk Kuyt after Xabi Alonso's opener at the end of the first gave Liverpool the points against the relegation strugglers, who had Caleb Folan sent off after an hour.

The win took Liverpool to 74 points and top spot on goal difference from Manchester United, who host Tottenham Hotspur later on Saturday and also have another game in hand.

Chelsea maintained third place on 71 points with a low-key 1-0 victory at West Ham United courtesy of Salomon Kalou's goal.
