Uruguayan International forward vs Spanish defender but a battle of Hernandez’s is sure to be one of interest.
After the best goal scoring season of his career in the English Championship, Hull’s Abel Hernandez will hope that his 21 goal performance last season will translate into a strong return to the Premier League.

During his debut season in England in 2014-15 with the Tigers he only scored four goals as he struggled to make his name. Having earned a place with his national side in the Copa America over the summer, Hernandez will be looking to get off to a good start entering his third season in England.
On the other side, Leicester City’s new arrival Luis Hernandez is a solid defender but not the greatest tackler and giving up a bit of height to his Uruguayan counterpart could also cause issues. Having spent a season in the Championship, Abel Hernandez is also likely to attack Luis Hernandez more than could be expected for someone that is used to the less physical Spanish league.
