David Meyler: Relishing the chance to play Chelsea in Hull's opening Premier

Hull start life back in the top flight with clashes against Chelsea and Manchester City in two of their opening three games.

But Meyler is relishing the opportunity for his side to prove they have what it takes to compete.

"You look at the list and you see the first two away games are against Chelsea and Manchester City, so it's going to be tough," said Meyler.

"We're all looking forward to it and it's going to be amazing. It's what we all worked so hard for last season isn't it?

"We've got the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City coming to the KC and it's going to be brilliant. It's great for the city of Hull and it's going to be great for the players as well.

"I'm sure the manager will have us all fired up and ready to go for that opening game against Chelsea.

"Jose Mourinho will do the same with his players and they'll be hoping to win the league. It will be tough, but maybe we can spoil his party."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
