Leicester V Hull
Where did that Leicester team come from on Monday night? They cut through Liverpool mercilessly, and the result may even have flattered Liverpool.
A lot will be said about Ranieri, and the players come the end of the season. Regardless if they stay up or if they go down. But if they give that same performance game, in game out, then they won’t be in a relegation very long. If Shakespeare can get a second victory on the bounce at home to Hull then that should be volumes to the board, who seemingly have their eye on Roy Hodgson as Ranieri’s replacement, if the wrong manager is selected then those heads could hang again. (Yes, the same Roy Hodgson who played Wayne Rooney as a holding midfielder, and had Harry Kane taking corners)
Hull have 5 points from their last 5 games, and Marco Silva has made them harder to beat. Relegation looms, but he is doing his best to inspire the players to an rise to the battle. Like Leicester, they were looking like a beaten team the from the first whistle.
If the same Leicester as Monday come out they could run away with the game. If Hull can set up shop and frustrate their opposition then they will know they will get a chance.
I believe Leicester will carry their high from Monday, and will take all 3 points. Leicester currently best price of @9/10 with Betfred & Bet Victor, the draw is @27/10 Paddy Power and Hull are @7/2 across the board.
