Hull City face Tottenham Hotspur at the KCOM Stadium on Sunday, hoping to give their fans the send-off they deserve in their last Premier League match of the season.
The Tigers are relegated, but Marco Silva will be keen to regain some pride after the previous two losses against Sunderland and Crystal Palace
Here’s who the manager could pick:
Eldin Jakupovic will keep his place in goal
Harry Maguire’s knee injury leaves The Tigers exposed at right-back. Silva could well call upon Omar Elabdellaoui to fill his spot. The Norwegian has appeared for Hull in six league games this season.
Michael Dawson and Ranocchia are likely to maintain their centre-back parternship, while maurading wing-back Andy Robertson is set to start on the left.
With Hull’s midfield injury woes compounded by the absence of Evandro with a knee injury, Silva is likely to shuffle his pack. Ahmed Elmohamady is likely to move into a more attacking midfield position, with Kamil Grosicki occupying the left-wing position.
Silva could well opt for a solid midfield three to smother Spurs’ attacking flair. Tom Huddlestone should return from injury, to sit at the heart of midfield alongside Alfred N’Diaye and Sam Clucas.
Oumar Niasse looks set to lead the line for Hull City. The Senegalese striker has impressed since arriving at the KCOM Stadium on loan from Everton in January; scoring four goals in eleven appearances.
Niasse is blessed with both pace and strength, making him an ideal candidate to play up-front on his own.
