All eyes are on the KC Stadium this afternoon as the Premier League new boys Hull City opened the season against Claudio Ranieri’s champions, Leicester.
The Tigers began the season with a mismatched and injury hit side and it seemed that the champions were an easy pick for this one. However, things are not going to plan in the Foxes’ title defence as – after a dull first half – Mike Phelan’s side took the lead into half time in spectacular style.

The goal sparked a flurry of celebration and reaction on social media, one fan summed up the un-predictability of the Premier League:
