As the current Premier League champions Leicester suffered a shock defeat at the hands of newly-promoted Hull City, whose threadbare squad has been widely tipped for relegation, on the first day of the new season – these were the best jokes.

Social media went into overdrive as the unexpected result became apparent and many speculated what surprises might be in store for this campaign.

Hull overcame Leicester City 2-1 at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday, with the home side refraining from making any substitutions from a bench largely composed of youth team players.

Looking at the replay, that Hull goal gets 9s for execution and 9.5s for synchronisation.

Realistically, I don't think we can catch Hull now. Focus on the Champions League, IMHO.
