Leicester Looking To Move Clear of Relegation Zone

Leicester dropped into the relegation zone last Saturday just two days after sacking Claudio Ranieri. However last Monday the champions looked a lot more like the title winning team of last season when they beat Liverpool 3-1 at the King Power Stadium.

Caretaker manager Craig Shakespeare went back to last season's winning formula by recalling Shinji Okazaki to the starting 11. Apart from new recruit Wilfred Ndidi it was the same team that Ranieri selected for almost all of last season. Ndidi was very impressive in the win over Liverpool and Leicester fans will be hoping he could be the man to fill the huge gap left by N'Golo Kante but I don't think there's anyone better in the Premier League in that role than Kante.

Leicester were much improved against Liverpool but Jurgen Klopp's side were pretty dismal and set up exactly how you shoudln't against Leicester. I don't think Hull will play with a high defensive line tomorrow so Jamie Vardy won't have as much space to run into as he did on Monday. Hull have earned eight points in six league games under Marco Silva but their only away win of the campaign came under Mike Phelan at Swansea on the second weekend of the season.

Hull did beat Leicester 2-1 on the opening day of the season and could become the first promoted side to do the double over the reigning top-flight champions since Norwich did it against Liverpool in 1982-83.

Leicester have the chance to win successive league matches for the first time since April last year which would give them a bit of breathing room.

Leicester against Hull will be the feature game on Premier League Live with Sky Sports which gets underway at 2.00 on Today FM.

Ian Beach and Brian Kerr will be at the King Power Stadium for us and there will also be a chance to win two tickets and flights to a Premier League game next month
