For 10 minutes or so they lost their way a little as the game drifted, yet the equaliser arrived shortly before the half-hour mark following a lovely move down the Leicester left involving Vardy and Christian Fuchs. "We were better in the first half and scored from a counter-attack".

Liverpool's 3-1 loss to the defending champions means that the Merseyside outfit have now conceded 33 times in 26 games in the 2016-17 Premier League campaign.

If Ranieri was still in charge, then Hull fans might fancy their side's chances but now it's like they're facing the Leicester of last season.

The host clung on to their lead well and even got a bit of icing on the cake late on with Huddlestone attempting to clear a corner but only succeeding in putting the ball in his own net to give Leicester a vital 3-1 win. "We need to take care of ourselves".

"As I've said before, I think in terms of results, it can breed massive confidence and the momentum we've just spoken about it, it can be massive in football and the one I'm pleased about is getting the two results".

Wes Morgan headed wide from a Mahrez free-kick before two risky low crosses from Jamie Vardy into the six-yard box were expertly turned behind under considerable pressure by Harry Maguire and then Andrew Robertson.

After a sharp response from Hull, Leicester saw another opportunity go begging when Robert Huth had a shot blocked by Maguire at the second attempt after failing to make contact initially. However, Eldin Jakupovic will feel he should have saved the effort.

Although Leicester carried on where they left off against Liverpool, playing on the front foot, creating chances and exploiting Jamie Vardy's pace in behind, it was Hull who took the lead with a classic counterattack.

The defender saw a header clip a post following a corner and shortly afterwards worked Kasper Schmeichel with another header from a Grosicki delivery. The ball breaks nicely for Niasse and he shots low towards the near post, producing a fine save from Schmeichel.

It was a huge win for last season's champions, who are now five points clear of the relegation zone.

Hull, meanwhile, remain second bottom of the table and are four points from safety after Crystal Palace won at West Brom.
