(Video) Adama Diomande bags stunning first Premier League goal of season as Hull City rock Leicester City

Hull City left it late in the first half as they took the lead against Leicester City in the first game of the new Premier League season.

The visitors were eyeing a strong start to the defence of their Premier League crown, and they certainly had the chances to put themselves in a winning position.

Jamie Vardy was guilty of missing two glorious chances, and the England international was made to pay as Adama Diomande scored with this superb overhead kick in additional time in the opening half.

There was some initial confusion over the goalscorer as Abel Hernandez also made contact with the ball, but ultimately the goal was given to Diomande, with the Premier League confirming on Twitter that his Uruguayan international teammate was credited with an assist.

Given Hull’s issues in the build-up to the new campaign, it would be a huge result for them if they were able to hold on, while in contrast, it would be a nightmare one for Leicester as Claudio Ranieri will have hoped his side would get off to a strong start.
