Hull City vs Tottenham Hotspur
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 21st May 2017
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: KC Stadium, Hull.
The Tigers have suffered a very painful descent into lower tier last week after being obliterated by Crystal Palace. Despite they had brilliant second part of the season at KC Stadium, Hull City will play in Championship next season.
The Spurs faced English champions at King Power Stadium on Thursday. This season’s Premier League runner-ups obliterated Leicester City FC 1-6 with Harry Kane becoming the fifth different player to score three or more hat-tricks during a season.
After horrible performances in the last 5 games (L3 D1 W1), Hull City are relegated to the lower tier. The hosts were the worst team on the road in Premier League as they only managed to win 6 points away from KC Stadium. In 18 home games, they managed to beat the opposition 8 times in addition to 4 draws and 6 defeats. Also, they conceded a goal more than they scored at KC Stadium (27 scored, 28 allowed).
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will finish the season in the 2nd place. They have played their last match at White Hart Lane last week when they beat Manchester United 2-1, and next season they will play at Wembley. However, their performances weren’t convincing at Wembley as they failed to qualify for UEFA Champions League knock-out phase.
Tottenham have collected 30 points on the road from 18 outings (W8 D6 L4) while conceding only 16 goals and scoring twice as much.
Hull City vs Tottenham Hotspur: Head-to-head
The last two meetings between the two sides took place at White Hart Lane where Tottenham beat Hull without conceding both times. Hull City are without a win against the Spurts since 2008.
Hull City vs Tottenham Hotspur: Prediction
The hosts are crushed after the heartbreaking relegation, but they will attempt to give the fans who religiously supported them throughout the whole season. The guests might rotate as Pochettino needs to give chance to players with less play time in order to increase his squad depth for the upcoming season.
