Our football match prediction:
Chelsea recorded a routine win over Leicester City at King Power Stadium in their last league game. Many people expected that Diego Costa would be sorely missed against Leicester, but that was not the case. The Blues rolled over Claudio Ranieri’s troops and thanks to the triumph they cemented top position in the Premier League standings. Antonio Conte’s men aim to move one step closer to winning the title and we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from Sunday’s football game against Hull City. Diego Costa has been left out of the squad, but the duo Pedro – Hazard is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Chelsea are a real force to be reckoned with at home and despite the fact that the Tigers gave fans some cheer at the weekend following a 3-1 win over Bournemouth, anything but a routine home win will be a major surprise in this one.
Highligted Player (Hazard):
After impressing during his six-year spell with Lille (2007-2012), Eden Hazard signed for Chelsea in June, 2012. The Belgian midfielder helped the Blues win the Premier League trophy in the 2014/2015 campaign and it has to be noted that he was named the Premier League Player of the Year back then. Eden Hazard made it to the 2014 World Cup quarter-finals with Belgium, but Argentina proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils in the last eight of the showpiece tournament in Brazil. Hazard scored one goal for Belgium at the Euro 2016 finals, while providing four assists for his teammates and no doubt he was the key player for Marc Wilmots’ team at the tournament in France. Eden was born on 7 January, 1991 in La Louviere, Belgium and it is well known that his brother Thorgan Hazard is a professional football player as well. Eden Hazard is married to Natacha Van Honacker, who gave birth to their three children.
Highlighted Team (Hull City):
Hull City are a professional football club that was founded back in 1904. The Tigers used to play their home games at Boothferry Park, but they moved to the KC Stadium in 2002. The stadium capacity is 24,450. Hull impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, they returned to the English Premier League. Hull City fans consider Leeds United their main rivals, but Sheffield United are regarded as Hull’s fierce rivals as well. Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider. Hull City finished the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign in 16th place in the standings to achieve their highest ever top flight finish. It has to be noted that Curtis Davies was named the team’s player of the year in the 2013/2014 season.
