Hull City manager Marco Silva surprised everyone by announcing the centre-back Curtis Davies has recovered from injury and is available to face Swansea this weekend.
The Englishman hasn't been available for selection since he was forced off early on in Hull's FA Cup defeat to Fulham on 29th January. Since his injury, Harry Maguire and new signing Andrea Ranocchia have delivered some fine performances at the back, but the team are still far from securing their league survival. However, Silva did not confirm whether or not the 31 year old will play. "Only news is the situation with Curtis, he has been training with us, yesterday and today and he will be available for the match... Of course he hasn't played over the last weeks but he is very important to have back. The other players, there is nothing new." Fri, Mar 10, 2017 07:19:00 PM

Marco Silva’s gamble backfired on Sunday with Curtis Davies likely to spend the next two months on the sidelines.

The Hull centre-back was forced off at Stamford Bridge in game week twenty-one because of a hamstring problem and missed the subsequent EFL Cup semi-final against Manchester United. However, Davies was handed a recall at Fulham on Sunday, but the 31-year-old lasted less than 10 minutes before a recurrence ended his afternoon. An MRI scan confirmed Davies had suffered extensive damage to his hamstring and he will miss around eight weeks. Harry Maguire will be paired with Michael Dawson in the heart of the Hull defence at Old Trafford on Wednesday, if, Dawson can recover from an unspecified problem which is described as 'nothing special' by the Hull manager.

New Hull City boss Marco Silva provided a mixed teams news update ahead of his sides FA Cup third-round tie against Swansea at the KCOM Stadium.

Having already lost Dieumerci Mbokani [DR Congo] and Ahmed Elmohamady [Egypt] this week, to the Africa Cup of Nations, the threadbare Tigers squad was hit with yet more bad news. Defenders Curtis Davies [hamstring] and Harry Maguire [hip] will also miss Saturdays match after picking up injuries during the 3-1 defeat at West Brom. There is no indication at this point on their likely period of absence: "Both players being given time for those issues to settle down." However, there was better news regarding Abel Hernandez who returns ahead of schedule. The Hull striker had surgery in December to cure a hernia complaint and comes back into contention. Allan McGregor [back surgery] is also pushing for his inclusion after nearly eight months on the sidelines but Alex Bruce won't be ready for another 2-3 weeks.

Hull City centre-back Curtis Davies has pleaded for reinforcements in the January transfer window to save the Tigers from the drop.

Hull now sit 19th in the league table, just above Swansea, after a poor patch of form which has included 8 defeats in ten league games. Their defeat to Middlesbrough was one of the most dour affairs of the season, with Hull only mustering up 2 shots on target and 39% possession at the Riverside in the 1-0 loss. They held off and stayed in their own half for most of the game, seemingly looking for a draw from the first whistle. Davies and Dawson were commanding and strong in defence throughout the game, ensuring that only Ramirez's moment of quality decided the tie. However going forward, Hull had no ability to hold possession and couldn't create anything of note until their late rally. Hull's first shot on target came in the 92nd minute -that's how subdued the Tigers were. Davies needs knows that the Hull squad enters the festive period paper-thin, he says they need to add to their 3 deadline day acquisitions in August in order to survive.

Curtis Davies continuous pops up as a player who could get an England call up, and rightly so. The stats say that the centre back is putting in nothing short of inspirational performances for Hull.

Last week, stats released by Opta showed Davies as the best defender in Europe's top leagues this season. He led the continent in interceptions, clearances and blocks. He has a huge margin this week in PL interceptions with 35 - 14 more than 2nd placed James Collins. However, while these stats will make Davies a bonus magnet when Hull get a clean sheet in the official PL game, it fails to highlight his attacking threat. He has the 5th highest shots in the Hull team with 5. All have been from inside the box. It seems it will only be a matter of time before he adds to his 5 PL goals.

Leicester City are interested in Hull City defender Curtis Davies.

Davies was injured for the latter part of the season and was a big part of why Hull were relegated. His presence was missed once he was ruled out and Hull struggled. He brings a good mix of skill and experience and is rightfully being pursued by a number of teams including Leicester City, Crystal Palace, and Watford. Davies can be a fantasy star due to phantom points alone, so he will be a good fantasy pick next season if he's at Leicester City.

Curtis Davies remains out of action for Hull City in Week 34 with a thigh muscle injury.

Hull City have a mini-crisis at the back with Curtis Davies definitely out for Week 34 and Alex Bruce doubtful as he struggles with a badly broken nose. Hull City already face a tough task in Week 34 as they travel to in-form Crystal Palace (last week's loss to West Brom not withstanding). Michael Dawson and James Chester are the likely starters but if Bruce isn't able to go then Hull City will be hard pressed to play with three central defenders as they frequently have this season. Given the match-up and Hull City's recent form, none of Hull City's central defenders is really worth starting this weekend if you can avoid it.

Curtis Davies' odd season continues with word that his status for Week 32 is uncertain due to a thigh complaint.

Davies' has been in and out of Steve Bruce's starting line-up even when healthy. He had a run of starts in the side due to injuries to Michael Dawson and James Chester but with both players now healthy it isn't clear whether he would start if he were healthy. For a player who was one of the revelations of the 2013-14 season, the 2014-15 season has been a difficult one. Expect that to continue with a summer move very possible. Fantasy managers should stay away from Davies down the stretch barring an injury elsewhere to the HCFC defense.

Curtis Davies may not be Steve Bruce's favorite player right now but he's been racking up strong phantom points since being restored to the starting line-up.

Fantasy managers and real life managers aren't always on the same page about the value of a player and Curtis Davies is a prime example of that early in 2015. Rumors have Steve Bruce ready to move on from one of last season's surprises but fantasy managers have been loving performances like the one he gave in Hull City's 1-0 loss in Week 21. Davies intercepted eight passes and blocked a shot in a double digit (Yahoo) performance. As Michael Dawson and James Chester return to health, it will be interesting to see what becomes of Davies and his starters minutes.

Curtis Davies seems to be on the outs at Hull City but the injury to Michael Dawson has him back in the line-up and producing over the festive period.

Curtis Davies has strung together some solid phantom point efforts over the course of the festive period that has seen him return to the starting line-up. Seemingly in Steve Bruce's doghouse, Davies did produce a rotten back pass that led to a Sunderland goal on Boxing Day. Hull City won that one but they weren't as lucky on Sunday against Leicester City but Davies was in double digits after adding a shot on target to four tackles won, two corners won, and two passes intercepted. Maybe Davies crawls out of the doghouse but if not, he could be headed elsewhere in January and his destination could also dramatically impact his fantasy value.

Curtis Davies is a doubt for Hull City's Boxing Day trip to the Stadium of Light with a calf issue.

Hull City have all sorts of issues with Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore both suspended and Momo Diame and Michael Dawson both out injured. Dawson's arrival has seen Davies position at the club slip somewhat but with the former Spurs man out until mid-January at the earliest, Steve Bruce will need Davies to find a way to play as often as possible. The results have been terrible for months and missing both Dawson and Davies isn't likely to help turn things around.

Curtis Davies has been rested (or rotated or benched) for two consecutive matches but seems likely to return with Chelsea the upcoming opponent requiring a stalwart defensive effort.

After being something of a revelation last season after making the jump up from the Championship, Curtis Davies hasn't been quite as impressive so far this season. Whether it is down to the player himself, fatigue, or the play of the team around him Steve Bruce has had Davies on the bench for the last two matches. With Davies rested and Chelsea the opponent, it seems likely that Steve Bruce will require all hands on deck which likely means Davies will return to the starting line-up.

Curtis Davies faces a fitness check on his sore back before Hull City's Week 12 home match against Spurs.

Hull City welcome back three key players in the form of Allan McGregor, Michael Dawson and Nikica Jelavic but that good could be undone if defensive rock Curtis Davies isn't available. The center back's, urm, back is hurting and Steve Bruce faces uncertainty over his ability to play as his club look to rebound from their horrible loss to Burnley in Week 11. You're going to have to wait until line-ups are out to decide what to do on this one.

Hull City were under a steady bombardment by the Liverpool attack but refused to concede, earning a cheeky road point at Anfield in a 0-0 final.

Liverpool dominated the stat sheet but if there were a stat for "moxie", Hull certainly were the better side. Despite being on the back foot for most of the match, they never appeared disorganized and tore down every buildup by the Reds systematically, with Davies as the leader in the back. On the negative side, their own attack was virtually non-existent and may be a worry going forward. They will try to correct when they host a tough opponent in Southampton next weekend.

Curtis Davies showed well in Hull City's 2-0 Week 7 win over Crystal Palace evoking memories of his exceptional year last year.

Curtis Davies has been good so far this season both in real life and for his fantasy managers but he hasn't been quite as good as he was last season until this past week. Part of the issue has been Hull City's overall tendency to give up goals late and part of it has been a lower volume of tackles and interceptions from the player himself. Week 7 saw Davies return to his commanding best as HCFC finally rewarded supporters with a clean sheet victory.
