Team News: Ahmed Musa partners Jamie Vardy in Leicester City opener against Hull City

Ahmed Musa is handed his Premier League debut as he partners Jamie Vardy up front in Leicester City's opener against Hull City, who have just 13 players in the squad.

Ahmed Musa will make his Premier League debut this afternoon as he partners Jamie Vardy up front in Leicester City's opener against Hull City, who have just 13 players in their squad.

The champions, who won their first top-flight title last season, will hope that club-record signing Musa gets off the mark alongside Vardy, who scored 24 league goals in the 2015-16 campaign.

Summer signing Luis Hernandez also makes his debut as he joins Danny Simpson, Wes Morgan and Christian Fuchs in defence, while Kasper Schmeichel starts in goal.

Manager Claudio Ranieri has also selected Danny Drinkwater, Andy King, Demarai Gray and Riyad Mahrez, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal this summer.

Newly-promoted Hull face a difficult start to their season as they are still without a permanent manager - Mike Phelan is in temporary charge - and a string of injury problems has resulted in just three substitutes being named on the bench.

Eldin Jakupovic starts in goal, with Ahmed Elmohamady, Curtis Davies and Andrew Robertson in defence alongside Jake Livermore, who has had to drop back from midfield because of the injury-ravaged squad.

Tom Huddlestone, David Meyler, Robert Snodgrass and Sam Clucas line the midfield, while Abel Hernandez and Adama Diomande start up front.

Hull City: Jakupovic; Elmohamady, Livermore, Davies, Robertson; Huddlestone, Meyler, Snodgrass, Clucas; Hernandez, Diomande
Subs: Kuciak, Tymon, Maloney

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Simpson, Hernandez, Morgan, Fuchs; Drinkwater, King, Mahrez, Gray; Musa, Vardy
Subs: Zieler, Chilwell, Albrighton, Amartey, Kapustka, Okazaki, Ulloa
