Hull City's Curtis Davies is bracing himself for a tough start against Leicester City when the season begins.

As if facing reigning champions Leicester City on the opening day was not hard enough for newly promoted Hull City, it appears the Foxes have become even more dangerous.
While they were beaten 4-2 by Barcelona in an entertaining friendly last night, striker Ahmed Musa was particularly impressive as he breached the La Liga champions' defence twice.
Gary Lineker in the stands
His performance impressed Leicester fan and Match of the Day host Gary Lineker, who suggested how mouth watering Musa's partnership with Jamie Vardy can be.

Just what Leicester supporters want to hear ahead of the new season - but definitely not what Hull City's defenders were hoping to see.
This was evidence by Hull captain Curtis Davies' reply to Lineker, expressing those same sentiments.

Hull can't seem to catch a break at the moment since their promotion, currently managerless, and running into an in form Ahmed Musa when the season begins is far from an ideal start to the Premier League season.
