Our match prediction:
Swansea City wil be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Burnley when they take on Hull City at their Liberty Stadium on Saturday. Swansea fans saw key player Andre Ayew leave the club in the summer transfer window and many people expect that he is going to be sorely misses in the 2016/2017 Premier League campaign. However, the Welsh outfit kicked off the new season in style and they are certainly capable of beating Hull City in front of home fans. The Tigers did well to upset reigning champions Leicester City in their opener, but it is well known that they often struggle when playing away from home. In their last meeting at Liberty Stadium Swansea City recorded a 3-1 win over Hull City and we predict that history is going to repeat itself. Experienced attacker Fernando Llorente is likely to lead the attack for the hosts against Hull City.
Highligted Player (Fer):
After spending four years at Feyenoord, Leroy Fer joined FC Twente in 2011. On 13 July, 2013 Norwich City chiefs closed a four-year deal with Fer for a fee in the region of £4.4 million. The Dutch midfielder made 30 appearances for Norwich and he scored three goals for the Carrow Road outfit. Following Norwich’s relegation from the elite division, the highly rated footballer went on to join Queens Park Rangers at the end of the 2013/2014 campaign. The Dutch footballer scored eight goals in 48 appearances for QPR, but on 1 February 2016 he was sent on loan to Swansea City. Fer made his move to Swansea permanent five months later. Leroy was born on 5 January, 1990 in Zoetemeer, Netherlands and he is 188 cm tall. His parents are originally from Curacao and his father Lesley was a baseball player. Speaking of his individual awards, Leroy Fer was named Rotterdam Talent of the Year in 2008.
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.
