Leicester City 0-1 Hull City: Liam Delap strikes to end Foxes' perfect start to new season

Hull City won at Leicester City to end the Foxes' 100% start to the new season.

Liam Delap put the Tigers in front in the 15th minute when he cut in from the right and found the bottom left-hand corner with a left-footed strike which took a deflection off defender Jannik Vestergaard.

The hosts were wayward with their shooting but rallied after the break as debutant Abdul Fatawu rattled the foot of a post, fellow substitute Cesare Casadei fired wide from eight yards out and Jamie Vardy headed narrowly off target.

A first defeat for Leicester since Enzo Maresca took charge this summer following relegation from the Premier League saw them drop off the top of the Championship table and down to third, while Hull climb to sixth after extending their unbeaten run to four league games.
