After another mauling from Manchester City, Tim Sherwood will be hoping for an instant response from his demoralised side. The heavy defeat, which saw Spurs move into a negative goal difference, ended a superb run of form for the side that had seen them win five in six in the Premier League.

Tottenham remain just three points off a Champions League spot though and possess the second best away record in the league. The resurgent Emmanuel Adebayor has scored on both his previous trips to the KC Stadium with Arsenal and Manchester City too.

Hull’s barren run of four games without a goal continued in their midweek defeat at Crystal Palace. Their revamped attack of Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long appeared together for the first time and Steve Bruce will hope they can form a prolific partnership. They remain sound defensively but have only managed one clean sheet against sides in the top-ten this season (and that was Aston Villa).
