Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez says they won't miss captain Steven Gerrard against Hull City.

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez says they won't miss captain Steven Gerrard against Hull City.

"Gerrard is a key player for us, especially attacking, but the team is doing well; Yossi Benayoun is doing well, Fernando Torres scored another two good goals (against Arsenal)," he said.

"The team know they have to attack and they have to win and it doesn't matter Gerrard is not there. All of them try to push and try to help.

"How to approach the game for us has to be the same: to play well and get three points.

"But it is a different style of football because they are a physical team and are fighting at the bottom of the table.

"Now they are in a position where they almost have to win every game as well so it will be tough."
