Tom Huddlestone reacts to Hull City’s defeat to Tottenham Hotspur

Tom Huddlestone claims that Hull City did not deserve to lose to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday.

Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone has admitted his disappointment at his side’s defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at the KC Stadium on Sunday.

The Tigers took the lead early in the first half, but conceded twice in the second period to lose the Premier League encounter 2-1.

Former Spurs midfielder Jake Livermore opened the scoring in the eighth minute with a powerful shot from 25 yards.

It was Hull who looked the likelier side to score the game’s second goal in the first half, but they could not.

Then in the early stages of the second period Gaston Ramirez was shown a controversial red card for lashing out at Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen - and this incident turned the tide in Spurs' favour.

Harry Kane scored the equaliser with a simple tap-in just past the hour mark, and star playmaker Christian Eriksen slammed home the winner from 20 yards in the final minutes of the contest.

Huddlestone, a former Tottenham player, was disappointed with the defeat and claimed that Hull did not deserve to lose.

Following the defeat to Tottenham, Hull are 16th in the Premier League table with 11 points from 12 matches, just a point above the relegation zone.
