Hull vs Tottenham Hotspur: What time does it start, what TV channel is it on and what are the odds?


Hull City take on Tottenham with both teams already consigned to their respective Premier League fates.

The home side know they will be relegated back to the Championship after just one season, but less certain is the future of manager Marco Silva. The Portuguese took over from Mike Phelan in January with the Tigers in complete disarray and his efforts to keep the club up have won him many admirers. Though nothing has yet been decided, Sunday could well be the 39-year-old’s last match in charge at the KCOM Stadium.

Spurs have recovered excellently to the disappointment of missing out on the title to Chelsea. Mauricio Pochettino’s team beat Manchester United in the last match before the redevelopment of White Hart Lane, then demolished Leicester 6-1 on Thursday. With 83 points in the back and second place guaranteed, the Argentine boss can look back on another fine season’s work.
