Marco Silva and Hull face stiffest test of season in trip to Stamford Bridge

Hull face a tough task in a trip to Stamford Bridge to face league leaders Chelsea this weekend.

On the day it became clear that Marco Silva would be the new coach tasked with saving Hull City from Premier League relegation, it is safe to assume that Wikipedia searches for the Portuguese boss spiked in East Yorkshire.

For all of his success at home with Estoril and Sporting Lisbon and then with Olympiakos in Greece, Silva was a stranger to English football. Even the lofty comparisons to compatriot Jose Mourinho had failed to make it to these shores.

Silva's appointment as City's head coach...

Another weekend of top Premier League action is upon us, and it's a big one for Pep Guardiola as his Manchester City side take on Tottenham. City have struggled in recent months, while Tottenham are on the rise, but who will come out on top at the Etihad?

Meanwhile, Chelsea have Diego Costa back in the squad but don't seem to need him that much as they take on lowly Hull City seven points clear at the top of the table.

New Hull boss Marco Silva hailed the spirit of the players and supporters after winning his first Premier League match.

The biggest win of Hull City's season, bar none.

Despite trailing inside three minutes through Junior Stanislas' penalty and threatening to go under during a first quarter dominated by Bournemouth, the Tigers found the resolve and ruthlessness to turn a game on its head.

Abel Hernandez's well-taken brace put City in front before Tom Huddlestone's strike took a fortuitous deflection off Tyrone Mings to earn Marco Silva a winning start to life in the Premier League. Things will get more difficult very...

Hull desperately need Bournemouth win with brutal schedule ahead

Marco Silva looks forward to challenge of managing Hull, starting with an FA Cup clash with Swansea.
Alison Bender and Don Hutchison discuss the appointment of new Hull City boss, Marco Silva.

Marco Silva can reflect on his opening week in English football with a cautious sense of satisfaction. After beating Swansea City 2-0 in the FA Cup third round, an injury-ravaged squad went down to a battling defeat away to Manchester United in the first leg of the EFL Cup semifinal.

So far, so good for Hull City's new head coach but the fixture carrying greatest significance is still to come. If Silva is to nurture the tentative optimism that accompanied his appointment last week, getting a result...

Overmatched Hull City's team effort impressive in EFL Cup defeat to United

The FC crew praise Man United's performance over Hull in the EFL Cup and touch on Morgan Schneiderlin's move to Everton.

On a night that threatened to see Hull City's hopes of reaching Wembley flat-line, there is still a pulse to be found in Marco Silva's side. It is faint after second-half goals from Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini put Manchester United firmly in the driving seat with a 2-0 advantage, but just to be still alive felt like an achievement for a team that has been decimated by injuries. Two midfielders played in defence with a defender in midfield, capturing the very definition of a makeshift side. Fellaini's...
