Jake Livermore: Broke the deadlock for Hull City at West Brom

Livermore was sent on loan by Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas at the start of the season and admits Hull manager Steve Bruce has made a significant impact on his morale.

The midfielder has featured heavily in Bruce's plans so far this term, making 15 appearances and his strike at The Hawthorns was his second in the Premier League.

Hull have battled their way into 12th in the Premier League standings and Livermore acknowledged the significance of playing regular football as he looks to develop his all-round game.

"To be fair the gaffer has been great, getting forward is one of my strengths and he has given me freedom to use that," Livermore told Sky Sports.

"He has been great for me confidence wise.

"At the minute, I'm just taking it game-by-game and enjoying my time here. The players here, the staff here, the fans, everything is great."

With parent club Spurs parting company with Villas-Boas on Monday, Livermore's future at the KC Stadium could be reviewed but the player insists that business is best left in the hands of both clubs.

Focused

"I'm just focusing on trying to improve," he added. "Whatever happens in January happens.

"Whatever the two clubs decide we will take it from there."

Bruce expressed his ambition to see Livermore remain a Hull player in the New Year and the one-cap England international admits he would be open to penning a permanent switch.

"I would love to play football week in, week out and score more goals like today," he said.

"Whatever that means, whether it be here or at Tottenham, I am definitely open to a move."

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.

aha, The Fine? That will really hurt. Thats like me biting someone in my place of work and getting fined 78p. I would round it up to 80p because thats how much a packet of Quavers or a Topic are in the machine. The bans are heavy though, and rightly so.
