Premier League News

LONDON: Robert Snodgrass scored the winner as crisis club Hull City brought Premier League champions Leicester
City crashing to earth with a shock 2-1 victory on Saturday’s opening day (Premier League).

Three months on from their 5,000-1 fairytale title triumph, Leicester fell to Scottish winger
Snodgrass’s 57th-minute strike after Riyad Mahrez had cancelled out Adama Diomande’s opener.

Elsewhere, Erik Lamela equalised to earn Tottenham Hotspur — last season’s third-place
team — a 1-1 draw at Everton after goalkeeper Hugo Lloris had been forced off by injury

It was the first time the defending English champions had opened the campaign with a defeat since
1989, when Arsenal lost at Manchester United.
