Leeds United are not unbeatable - why can't Hull City upset the odds at Elland Road?

You need a bit of luck sometimes in football and Leeds United have had some of that in recent weeks to stay on their winning run. sbobet88888 After years of trying to get back to the Premier League this season looks like it could be the one that finally sees Leeds promoted, but Saturday’s game at Elland Road is certainly one Hull City can get something from. As I say, Leeds have rode their luck a little and while they’re playing well, they’re far from unbeatable and this is a game where City can really go at the league leaders.

sbobet88888 Nigel Adkins’ side will start as underdogs, there will be no shame in seeing their own winning run ended at Leeds and with the relegation zone now a dot in the rear view mirror, the players can approach this game with the pressure off and confidence high.Leeds are a team that concede goals and you can certainly get at them from set pieces.Matching Leeds’ work rate is going to be crucial and if City do that, get off to a good start and keep the confidence and belief high, I think they could upset the league leaders and come home with all three points.The atmosphere is going to be fantastic and I’m expecting a cracking game between the Championship’s two form teams.

You can make an argument this match being the decider of which team should get the award for team of the month and what a perfect way to end a great December, going to Leeds and taking all three points.I suspect there will be goals in the game and whether Fraizer Campbell is fit for City could be crucial, but with Jarrod Bowen and sbobet88888 Kamil Grosicki playing well and the midfield clicking, even with Jackson Irvine now on international duty, City have the tools to get the job done and go into 2019 on a massive high.

Tom Davies’ display against Lincoln proves he isn’t good enough for Everton’s starting lineup

Struggling Everton midfielder Tom Davies failed to take his chance to show Marco Silva that he can be a consistent starter in his lineup as he put in a dismal performance against Lincoln in the FA Cup third round.

What’s the word, then?
sb0bet Since bursting onto the scene as an exciting, determined box-to-box midfielder, who played as if he’d been in the Toffees’ team for years, 20-year-old Davies has tailed off somewhat.

The 5ft 11in tall Everton academy graduate made his first start for the club in the 2016/17 season, and ended the campaign with the club’s ‘Goal of the Season’ award as well as the ‘Performance of the Season’ award under his belt, with both accolades coming as a result of his showing in a 4-0 over Manchester City.

Whether or not he simply did too much, too soon, is up in the air, but something has happened which has resulted in Davies’ career stagnating somewhat – his ineffective performance against the League Two leaders summed up his situation.

What was so bad about it?
sb0bet Whilst the youngster didn’t have a complete shocker in terms of falling over himself and scoring own goals, he was disappointing against a side who he really should be bossing affairs against.

The fact he has made just six starts in the league this season and lost his place to new arrival Andre Gomes meant that Davies needed to take his chance against Lincoln.

He was substituted on the 46-minute mark for the aforementioned Gomes with the scoreline a tense one, as Everton had just a 2-1 lead to cling onto. Notably, the fact that Silva threw in the Portuguese midfielder when the going got tough shows that he has no faith in Davies, sb0bet who some fans think is exempt from criticism thanks to his status as an academy player as well as a local lad.
