Leicester provided breathing room after 3-1 win over Hull

Leicester provided breathing room after 3-1 win over Hull

Marko Arnautovic scored two first-half goals Saturday to lead Stoke to a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough, which plunged into the Premier League relegation zone.

For the first time since last April, Leicester have put together back-to-back victories in the Premier League and if this was not almost as convincing as their drubbing of Liverpool, despite the similar scoreline, it was still recognisably the Leicester of old.

Clucas' first Premier League goal certainly halted the Leicester momentum as numerous moves broke down without the pinpoint accuracy they had exerted before the opener.

Tom Huddlestone's own goal made it 3-1 late on and Shakespeare was full of praise for Algeria global Mahrez. We have to put in another performance. We need to always fight, but we can rest and analyse the game now.

"As I've said before, I think in terms of results, it can breed massive confidence and the momentum we've just spoken about it, it can be massive in football and the one I'm pleased about is getting the two results".

"The numbers are not good for us, that is clear. We have to prepare for the next game".

Hull opened the scoring in the 14th minute through a counter attack. A lofted corner was headed down by Peter Crouch and Arnautovic reacted first inside the six-yard box to swivel and score through a bunch of Middlesbrough defenders.

The left-back steadied himself to sidefoot goalwards and, thanks to a hapless attempt at a save form Eldin Jakupovic, the ball slalomed across the line.

After that scare, Leicester managed to find their footing thanks to a stunning strike from Riyad Mahrez.

It was a rare glimpse of the magic that earned him the PFA Players' Player of the Year award last season, but once more Jakupovic should probably have done better. A flurry of substitutions slowed down the tempo of the game in favour of the hosts, before Niasse drove a low effort palmed away by the outstretched hand of Schmeichel. Yet the Foxes eventually earned their reward for another industious display, as Onyinye Ndidi flicked on a corner than bounced inadvertently off Tom Huddlestone and into the back of his own net.

Leicester's resurgence has seen them move five points clear of the relegation places and Merson can not see them going down.

Hull, meanwhile, remain second bottom of the table and are four points from safety after Crystal Palace won at West Brom.
