Hull City received a huge blow when playing against Arsenal on October 18 and even though the game concluded on a 2-2 draw, Hull City lost 2 of their most influential figures as Michael Dawson and Nikica Jelavic picked up injuries that would leave them out for around 6 weeks of playing time.
Nikica Jelavic sustained the injury during his warm up before the match of Hull City against Arsenal had even begun and the Croatian attacker was unable to play. Michael Dawson on the other hand had to be removed from the pitch in the 2nd half of the match after suffering from an ankle injury.
“I love playing, which is why the ankle injury is so frustrating. Hopefully, it won’t be too bad. I am loving my time and this is a great club with great lads and a great gaffer. You can’t ask for a lot more than that. We also have a good team striving to be successful.” Hull City’s Michael Dawson said.
Having secured 1 point against a team that is located in the top spots of the Premier League is a good result for Hull City but losing 2 of their main players, it was a huge blow that the team of Steve Bruce had to endure.
These injuries were sustained at a moment when Hull City and Steve Bruce was going to need to have his entire squad at full force and healthy as they would later have to face off against Liverpool and Southampton which are some of the top clubs in the English League.
Hull City did manage however to grab 1 point when playing against Liverpool as the match ended in a goal-less tie which is a good result for team of Steve Bruce taking into consideration that the squad was playing without some of their main figures and still managed to secure a point against Liverpool.
