London - Liverpool kept up the pressure on Manchester United at the top of the Premier League table with a 3-1 win at Hull on Saturday.With United playing Tottenham in an evening fixture, Rafael Benitez's side moved back to the top on goal difference thanks to a first-half strike from Xabi Alonso and a second-half double from Dirk Kuyt on his 100th Premier League appearance.Alonso volleyed in just before half-time after his own free-kick had come back off the Hull wall.By the time Kuyt headed in his first, in the 63rd minute, Hull had been reduced to ten men after Caleb Folan was dismissed for kicking out at Martin Skrtel.Phil Brown's relegation-threatened side still managed to stage a late rally with Geovanni pulling a goal back, but Kuyt killed the contest with a close-range effort one minute from time.

The competition is getting interesting, not so much because of the quality of the matches but more because of the teams making their moves to contest for the top spots, writes blogger Baylion.
