Hull City expects defender Michael Dawson to make his long-awaited return from injury after the international break.

The former Tottenham veteran suffered ligament damage in a preseason friendly in July, but he is working to be back for the club's Week 8 fixture against Bournemouth, which would likely move Jake Livermore back to midfield. "Although Michael missed a lot of last week with a virus, the plan remains for him to start training with the rest of the team next week and then hopefully, with some sessions under his belt, he’ll be available from the Bournemouth game after the international break onwards," Head of Medical Services Rob Price said. "He’s done really well in his recovery from this injury."

Mike Phelan is not ruling out a defensive future for Jake Livermore who has made the successful transition from midfield maestro to ball-playing centre-back following a number of injuries at the start of the new campaign.

Livermore stepped in for the season opener against champions Leicester City and he hasn’t looked back since. Losing Michael Dawson and Harry Maguire [both ankle] in pre-season, and with limited options in a threadbare Tigers squad, Livermore slotted into the back-four to partner Curtis Davies and the 26-year-old has started every Premier League game even though Maguire is now fit. "I've never really had the conversation with Jake as to where he sees his future, whether that's in midfield or the position he's in at the moment," said Phelan. "He's taken to it really, really well. When we look at the games and we analyse, he's very comfortable there. He's added a certain amount of calmness to proceedings."

Ahmed Elmohamady was sent-off during the first half at Anfield on Saturday.

Elmohamady blocked Phillip Coutinho's goal-bound effort on the goal line, leaving referee Andre Marriner with no option but to send him off and award the Reds a penalty. James Milner converted to score his club's second of the day. Because the offence carries a mandatory one game ban, Elmohamady will miss Hull's next game, which is at home to Chelsea on October 1st.

New Hull signing Markus Henriksen had a debut to remember in Hull's Capital One cup win over Stoke.

The Norway international chipped in with a goal and an assist. Marko Arnautovic scored for the second game in succession in the 23rd minute after cutting in from the left to unleash a venomous shot. Ryan Mason equalised for the Tigers, latching on to Henriksen's cross with a looping volley from the back post. A really spectacular goal. Even though Stoke won the shot count game comprehensively 21-5 and dominated the game, they failed to find a second and Henriksen killed off the tie with his debut goal from close range.

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.

Hull City under still-caretaker manager Mike Phelan have continuously churned out unlikely results this season. However, maybe there is too much luck involved for it to continue?

The Tigers have mainly got to thank Scotsman Robert Snodgrass for his contribution to this with 2 goals - he is also their main shooter with 12 shots. What's most striking is Hull's dependence on the long ball and Abel Hernandez's ability to compete for it. They lead the league for long balls attempted with 83 and more of their action comes in their own third than any other team. Amazingly, they also play the least football of any team in the opposition third. Their conversion rate of the (2nd last in PL) big chances they had points to how perilous their play really is. 6 goals is an overperformance for their play, and as defences wise up to their basic tactics, it's hard to see their success continuing.

Robert Snodgrass scored for the second consecutive week and the third time this season in Week 5.

It wasn't a strong outing from Hull City who have started the season in surprisingly good form. While it wasn't great from Mike Phelan's men overall the match saw another goal from Robert Snodgrass who has been Hull City's best attacker thus far with three goals in five matches including today's penalty and last weekend's set piece.

Jake Livermore was sent-off during the first half at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday, but the midfielder, come defender will be available for selection in game week six.

Livermore blocked Francis Coquelin's goal-bound effort in the box, leaving referee Roger East with no option but to send him off and award the visitors a penalty despite protests from the home side. However, Hull will feel justice was served after Eldin Jakupovic guessed correctly, diving to his right, to save Alexis Sanchez's low spot-kick. Because the offence carries a mandatory one game ban, Livermore will serve his suspension in the EFL Cup on Wednesday making him eligible for the game at Anfield next weekend.

Hull City was on the other side of a dramatic late-game goal with Robert Snodgrass securing a point in a 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Snodgrass carried over his spectacular form with Scotland during the international break, where he scored a hat-trick in a World Cup qualifier against Malta just days ago, to score the equalizer against Burnley on the final play of the match off a free-kick in the 95th minute. Down 1-0 after Burnley's 72nd-minute goal, Tom Huddlestone drew a foul outside the box that set Snodgrass up for the last-second goal, his second of the season. Both Ryan Mason and Will Keane made their club debuts as substitutes.

Robert Snodgrass continued his fine start to the season by netting a hat-trick for Scotland.

The Scots were pitted against Malta in their opening World Cup qualifier and swatted the minnows aside after early struggles. "Snoddy" opened the scoring on the night when a cross from the right flank on the edge of the box curled over all the expecting foreheads to nestle in the top left hand corner. However, Malta drew level and held out until the interim with the score 1-1. Snodgrass spurned a great headed opportunity before later scoring a penalty and slotting home his side's 5th in a 1v1 with the goalkeeper. Hull fans and fantasy managers alike will hope that the 28 year old can maintain his form when the PL returns.

Hull City have been handed an injury boost with the news that several of their first team players are edging closer to a return.

Scans confirm Michael Dawson is progressing nicely and the defender is approximately 4-5 weeks away from playing after sustaining an ankle ligament injury during pre-season. The Hull defender has been training with Brian Lenihan who is expected to be back within the next fortnight having undergone knee surgery in May. Hull also confirmed Greg Luer could miss up-to 12-weeks after damaging knee cartilage in the recent EFL Cup win over Exeter. But, Alex Bruce is healing quicker than originally anticipated following reconstructive surgery on his Achilles. The Tigers are hoping to have the full-back available again by late-November/early-December. Elsewhere, Moses Odubajo [knee] is improving but won’t re-join the main group for another couple of months while Allan McGregor will have a 4-5 month rehab period after he was given the all-clear to step up his recovery from back surgery.

Ryan Mason is the latest player to join Hull City following David Marshall and as yet unannounced Jeff Hendrick in bolstering the surprise package of the young Premier League season.

It was a rough go for Ryan Mason at Spurs over the last 24 months. Between injuries and falling behind a number of competitors for central midfield spots in the eyes of Mauricio Pochettino a move is probably best for the young central midfielder. A move to Hull City should give him every opportunity to re-establish himself as a Premier League-quality first team player. As Hull City's record signing, he should slot immediately in to the first team.

Hull City have signed Cardiff City goalkeeper David Marshall on a three year deal.

The Scotland international has signed for the Yorkshire club for an undisclosed fee. Marshall is expected to compete with current shot-stopper Eldin Jakupovic for a place in the starting line-up. Last seasons starting 'keeper Allan McGregor is sidelined with a long term back injury and won't feature again until 2017. Marshall spent 7 years at Welsh club Cardiff City, and was one of their longest serving players. At 31, he has plenty to offer Hull and Fantasy Managers, who will remember his time in the Premier League a few years back fondly for his high save points at a cheap price.

Abel Hernandez's proposed move to Championship club Aston Villa for £20 million has fallen through after the two clubs failed to agree terms.

Villa were keen to sign the Uruguayan striker after he scored 22 goals in the Championship last season as Hull were promoted. It appeared that they were willing to break he Championship record to do so. However, it now looks like Villa's pursuit has failed. Hull are in the market for a number of players in order to bulk up their squad ahead of the looming deadline. One such player is Republic of Ireland international Jeff Hendrick who they're hoping to sign from Derby County.

Manchester United striker Will Keane is set to leave his boyhood club to move to Hull City.

Keane is linking up with his former coach at Old Trafford Mike Phelan who is still in place as Hull's caretaker boss. Since coming through United's academy, Keane has struggled to break into the first team. He was shipped out on loan on numerous occasions to Wigan, QPR and Sheffield Wednesday among others. He spent the first half of last year at Preston North End before he was recalled by Louis Van Gaal. In total, the 23 year old made 3 appearances for United, with 2 of those coming last term.
