African stars Riyad Mahrez and Wilfred Ndidi impressed as champions Leicester City beat struggling Hull City 3-1 at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
The champions beat Liverpool 3-1 last Monday in their first game since the sacking of manager Ranieri and caretaker coach Craig Shakespeare saw them record back-to-back wins for the first time since last April.
Sam Clucas gave Hull a 14th-minute lead, but goals from Christian Fuchs, Riyad Mahrez and a Tom Huddlestone own goal completed a gritty comeback – and further boosted Craig Shakespeare’s ambitions of getting the job full-time.
Mahrez scored a great goal, as he showed a glimpse of the magic that earned him the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award last season.
Ndidi, who was brilliant against Liverpool was guilty of Hull’s opener but grew into the game as his header led to Huddlestone’s own goal, while international teammate, Ahmed Musa was left out of the Matchday squad.
Leicester pulled five points clear of the relegation zone with the victory.
