    Hull City vs. Tottenham Hotspur: An Alternative Preview

    Probable Lineups:

    harper soldadoHull City (4-4-2): Harper, Rosenior, Davies, McShane, Figueroa, Elmohamady, Huddlestone, Meyler, Boyd, Jelavic, Long

    Allan McGregor will serve a three game suspension after receiving a red card in their loss to Crystal Palace, resulting in Steve Harper coming in to replace him.  Steve Bruce may also revert to a 4-4-2 after unsuccessful attempts with the 3-5-2.  Jake Livermore will be ineligible to play against his parent-club Spurs.

    Tottenham (4-4-2): Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Chiriches, Vertonghen, Lennon, Sandro, Dembélé, Eriksen, Adebayor, Soldado

    Spurs will be looking to bounce back after another thrashing by Manchester City in midweek.  Danny Rose is suspended, so a possibly fit again Jan Vertonghen will fill the left back role.  Adebayor and Soldado will reform their partnership and look to get a few goals past Hull, who are on a four game losing streak.

    What the fans are saying…

    Remember this?

    Roberto Soldado scores a late penalty against Hull earlier this year.  Didn’t think a penalty can have fans going this wild!

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    eriksen

    The recent focus may have been on Adebayor’s return to form but the man quietly going on with his business behind him is Christian Eriksen.  The Danish playmaker has either scored or assisted in his last four games and priced at a decent 7.3 in the Official Fantasy Premier League game could amass some more points with Spurs looking to attack the Tigers.

    Only one of the last six meetings between Hull and Spurs in all competitions has ended as a home win (three away wins, two draws).

    Tottenham have won their last five Barclays Premier League away matches, their best run since 1960.

    Jermain Defoe scored a hat-trick on Spurs’ last visit to the KC Stadium.

    Tottenham are in fifth place in the Premier League table but have a negative goal difference (-1) – the only side in the top nine places to do so.

    George Boyd is the most used substitute in the division this season (15 times).

    Tottenham’s last Premier League clean sheet away from home came on November 3rd and they have failed to keep one in their six road trips since.

    Spurs have scored at least once in every Premier League game under Tim Sherwood.

    No team has hit fewer shots on target than Hull this season (71 - level with Cardiff).

    Hull have received a red card in each of their last two Premier League games – this after going 19 PL games without one.

    Since putting six past Fulham; Hull City have gone four league games without a goal.
