Cape Town - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has called on his squad to remain focused on the task at hand as they aim to keep their slender top-four hopes alive.
The Merseysiders lost ground on the teams above them in the standings as they played out a goalless draw with West Bromwhich Albion at the weekend.
However, they still have a slender chance to securing a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League, provided they win all their remaining games and the teams above drop points.
As such, the Reds will view Tuesday night's clash with stragglers Hull City as a must-win fixture.
"It will be a tough game away at Hull, they had a good result at the weekend, but for us the idea is to go in and see if we can get the victory and keep putting as much pressure as we possibly can on the teams above," Rodgers said.
"We can only focus on ourselves, but we saw last year lots of changes can take place in the last five games or so. We just have to be prepared to give everything to finish as high as we can."
A win would see Liverpool move to within four points of fourth-placed Manchester United, while a draw or defeat would all but spell the end of any lingering hopes of securing Champions League qualification.
