HULL LOSE THE PLOT
Hull City lost the second match of the campaign after a 2-0 defeat against former champions Manchester City. This was a disappointing result for the team only a few weeks after suffering the 2-0 opening day defeat at the hands of Chelsea.
Hull was certainly not expecting an easy three points at the Etihad stadium because they knew that they were coming up against a team that had won the Premier league championship only in the season before last. However, manager Steve Bruce will have certainly not expected a poor finishing touch from his players up front.
This proved to be one of the primary reasons for the defeat, and improves acknowledged this after the match. He said that the players should be more clinical when it comes to taking their chances if they are to survive in this league. Hull City have been looking to strengthen their team by adding a striker before the end of the transfer window.
They have been linked with players like Nicklas Bendtner of Arsenal and Shane Long of West Brom, and are odds on to sign a striker before the transfer window closes according to bet online uk. Hull were extremely good up until the 65th minute when Alvaro Negredo opened the scoring.
Yaya Toure’s goal in the final minute of the match sealed things off for Hull.
“I couldn’t have wished for a better performance. I thought we were terrific all afternoon and had probably more chances than the last four or five visits I’ve had here, so you have to take them. You know that Achilles heel we have got – can we score? We’ve had really good possession, played well, created the chances. Unfortunately, we’ve created enough but we haven’t been able to score and that’s the difference at this level,” said Bruce.
The next match will be against fellow newly promoted Cardiff City, who have already got four points on the table.
