PREM: Leicester v Hull preview


Leicester v Hull preview

Leicester caretaker boss Craig Shakespeare will look to make it back-to-back wins as Claudio Ranieri’s replacement when Hull City visit the King Power Stadium.


The Foxes moved out of the relegation zone on Monday night with a much improved performance to beat Liverpool 3-1.

However, Leicester have won just three of their 13 Premier League games against teams in the bottom half of the table.

Hull have been in the relegation zone since October 21 but are reducing the deficit under their new boss Marco Silva, who has won eight points in his six league games in charge.

They have had their troubles on the road having not won any of their last 12 Premier League away games (D2 L10) and their only win on the road this season was a 2-0 win at Swansea in August.
 
Strikers Islam Slimani and Leonardo Ulloa are fit again for Leicester after being included in the side against Liverpool on Monday night.

Ahmed Musa was left out against the Reds for tactical reasons and the striker will hope to be back in Shakespeare's plans for Saturday.

Hull defender Harry Maguire is expected to shake off a knee injury in time.
 
Maguire needed treatment during last week's home draw against Burnley but played on for the full 90 minutes, while midfielder Sam Clucas is available after serving a one-game ban.

Lazar Markovic is also back in contention after an unspecified problem, but Dieumerci Mbokani will be sidelined for up to six weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury against Burnley. Curtis Davies, Michael Dawson, Evandro, Ryan Mason and Markus Henriksen are still out.
