Swansea v Hull - Saturday 15:00
Despite there being no new signings to speak of and significant attacking departures including Mohamed Diame and Sone Aluko, Hull confounded pre-season expectations against Champions Leicester last weekend, and will now view their season ahead with renewed optimism. They may have unresolved issues with the ownership, no permanent manager and an injury crisis in defence, but they will sense another good chance for three points against a Swansea team with problems of their own.
Swans fans will have been pleased to see their side record a win on the opening day in what looks set to be a challenging season. Having sold key players Andre Ayew and Ashley Williams and without yet really replacing Jonjo Shelvey, much attention will focus on new signings Fernando Llorente and Borja Baston. The former was impressive in his hold up play against Burnley, and the World Cup winning Spaniard can be backed at 2.65 to score anytime against Hull’s injury-ravaged defence. The actual result is probably best avoided but we’d be wary of getting carried away after Hull’s win last week as no side in the top 16 in the Championship last season lost more away matches.
