Huddlestone backing Hull striker Sagbo to rattle Premier League defences

Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone is convinced teammate Yannick Sagbo is genuine Premier League class.

Sagbo is aiming to shoot down Huddlestone's old club Tottenham today in a Premier League clash at White Hart Lane.

Huddlestone told the Daily Star Sunday: "Yannick is a brilliant frontman and one who I believe can hurt Premier League ­defenders with his pace and power.

"He is very strong and super quick and those are two ­attributes which any defender will tell you they simply don't like.

"And he can shoot instinctively with both feet as well.

"He proved his worth last week at Everton when he scored and that was a game that we perhaps could have got something out of.

"He got his chance and took it and that is what all top strikers do.

"Obviously he got a red card in the first home game of the season against Norwich but I am sure he now knows you have to try to remain calm."
