Recent respective form guides

Tottenham Hotspur's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Spurs have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Hull City's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The The Tigers's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 8 goals for and 6 against.

Tottenham H. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 6 games have yielded only 2 points. Hull City find themselves in a respectable 6th position, courtesy of the 11 points they have accumulated from 6 games.
