The West London side have secured seven points from their last three games and currently sit tenth in the table. Liverpool, meanwhile, will move into the top five with a win this evening.
"We've been really pleased with the return we've had from the last three games," Hughes told reporters yesterday. "We're looking forward to [Liverpool]. We're playing with confidence and they are as well."
The teams last faced off in January at Anfield, where The Cottagers suffered a 1-0 defeat following an own goal from John Pantsil.
"We went to Anfield early in Kenny [Dalglish]'s tenure and to be perfectly honest, I thought we were the better team on the day," added Hughes. "Unfortunately we conceded an own goal, but in general play I thought we were better. If we can replicate that and add goals, which we have been doing recently, we can make it difficult for them."
Kickoff at Craven Cottage tonight is at 20.00.
