Robert Snodgrass ensured that Premier League Champions Leicester City began their title defence with a defeat as he powered in a winner as Hull City handed the Foxes a 2-1 bashing.
Hull City had just Mike Phelan and his assistant on the bench as manager as the club management failed to employ a new Gaffer since Steve Bruce left the club with his backroom staff while Leicester had their backroom staff intact but Robert Huth was missing due to suspension.
The first half was lackluster for the premier league champions as they had all the possession but was slow and not swift as witnessed last season.
The hosts had the first opportunity as Snodgrass whipped in a corner, Davis beat Wes Morgan in the air but his header went wide.
Leicester’s record signing Musa showed his lightning pace when he beat Livermore down the left but Jamie Vardy missed timed his cut back as the Tigers survive.
Musa again was involved as he latched onto a loose ball in the final third and again played the ball into Vardy’s part but the England forward blazed the ball over the bar.
However, Hull went into the lead just before half-time as Snodgrass corner was connected with a header by David which Kasper Schmeichel pushed into the path of Hernandez and Diomande and both applied a bicycle kick at the same time to score but the goal was later awarded to Diomande.
The Foxes started the second half on fired as Gray earned a penalty within 15 seconds of the restart and Riyad Mahrez stepped up to convert with ease.
But poor defending from Leicester saw Hull retake the lead – a lazy throw by Schmeichel resulted to a cross from the right flank and Simpson could only cleared into the path of Snodgrass and he bullets the ball into the bottom left corner of the goal to make it 2-1.
