  1. Goodbye

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    Well, well. That is some start to the new season. 

    Hull, amid the backdrop of fan protests and having just 13 players in the squad, pull off a magnificent opening day victory.

    Has champions Leicester's bubble burst already? We shall see over the course of the season.

    Head here to follow rest of Saturday's games

  2. We deserved it

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    Hull matchwinner Robert Snodgrass: "It is a great feeling. Leicester know it is a new season and we have togetherness. The mentality and character got us through."

    Hull captain Curtis Davies: "I was letting out frustration in the huddle at the end. I said we need to stick together. We had nothing to lose, we played well and deserved the win."

    I was close. (See 2:24pm entry)

    FT: Hull 2-1 Leicester

    David Burns

    BBC Radio Humberside

    Mike Phelan's team were absolutely magnificent today. Football has this capacity to constantly surprise you and I think that is one of the greatest results in Hull City's history

    Leicester are a scalp now. Hull have been excellent. Hull had 13 fit players fit and kept the same 11 on the park. What a shift they put in. They deserve a pat on the back. The two cente-halves and Sam Clucas were excellent.

    Leicester looked tired. They have traveled round the world in pre-season and they looked drained. I'm sure there's more to come from the champions.

  5. Prescott loving it

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    Gotta love this tweet from politician John Prescott...

  6. Post update

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    Hull in a huddle and it's their leader Curtis Davies who is leading the talk. It will have been something like: "What a win lads. Win together, lose together. Keep it going!"

  7. FULL-TIME

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    The Tigers are growling as they outfox champions Leicester to pick up a famous opening day victory in the Premier League.

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    ...but he can only hit the ball straight at Eldin Jakupovic who is relieved to gather the ball. Time is up.

    Danny Drinkwater with a strike...

  10. Post update

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    Leicester striker Jamie Vardy curses himself as he loses control of the ball and it rolls out of play.

    Seconds remaining.

  11. Post update

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    Riyad Mahrez's chip into the box is headed powerfully away by Curtis Davies. The Hull man has had a terrific game.

  12. Post update

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    Leicester have a free-kick 30 yards out after Tom Huddlestone brings down Riyad Mahrez. Can the champions grab a point?

  13. Post update

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    David Meyler picks the ball up and lets fly with a thumping drive from around 30 yards out but it's off target.

    Two minutes left to hold on.

    David Webb: There is likely to be a Big Shout for #Phelan to keep the #HullCity job - Ferguson moulded & he was pretty good. 

    Vancouver Foxes: Musa the one real positive from today, looks a proper good player 

    N A Burton: Hull City v #LCFC was always a perfect storm. Nothing to lose v everything to lose

  15. Post update

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    Leicester to get back into the game? It's Hull who are holding the ball in the corner of the attacking area.

  16. Post update

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    FIVE additional minutes to play. Where's that come from?

    Hull have matched them and been better in a lot of areas. They have been magnificent as a unit. Hull deserve the lead and if it finishes this way I don't think Leicester can have too many complaints.

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    Patient build-up from Leicester but Ahmed Musa's cross from the left drifts out of play.

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    The Hull fans are in fine voice. As things stand, their side will top the Premier League table. Anyone have a fiver on that at kick-off?

    Minutes left, Hull creeping towards the finish line.

  20. Post update

    Hull 2-1 Leicester

    Jamie Vardy still working hard in the final third but is finding Hull pair Jake Livermore and Curtis Davies too much, who tag team together to snuff out the danger.

    Into the last five.
