Leicester City vs Hull CityEngland Championship, KO: 15:00 Sep 2, 2023, King Power's Stadium
Leicester City will be aiming to maintain their 100% record as they host Hull City in a Championship fixture on Sunday. While Hull have made a decent start, the clash against the early pacesetters is not expected to go their way.
Leicester have made a blistering start to the season and are the only team in the Championship with a 100% record. They have won all six of their matches across all competition this season, including a 2-0 victory at Tranmere Rovers in a midweek Carabao Cup clash.
The Foxes appear to have too much quality for their rivals in the Championship as they have retained much of their key players from their time in the topflight. However, the likes of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi are linked with moves away and may not be available for Saturday’s clash.
Regardless of who is available on Saturday, Leicester City will be confident of coming out on top. Enzo Maresca’s men have won their two Championship matches, claiming 2-1 victories over Coventry City and Cardiff City.
