Hull City Tigers are the next opponents to fall victims to evergreen Frank Lampard, as the Chelsea dream-dasher and his Manchester City teammates embark upon a trip to Humberside.
A price of 57/100 says the on-loan New York City man will be celebrating three points at the KC, with the hosts available to back at 19/4 alongside a 14/5-rated draw.
An appealing spread, we’re sure you’ll agree, but the most drool-inducing punt of the entire buffet is backing Lampard to notch at any point of the match at 2/1.

After augmenting his first City strike with a brace against Sheffield Wednesday last time out, the veteran midfielder has been singled out for praise from Manuel Pellegrini and should almost certainly feature at Hull as he slides his feet under the table.
His first ever Premier League meeting with this adversary yielded a goal inside three minutes, helping Chelsea on their way to a 3-0 victory in east Yorkshire.
This strike was bookended by a wonderful free kick in the Blues’ 2-0 triumph over Steve Bruce’s side on last term’s opening day, which proved to be Lampard’s last appearance against Hull.
A further portent for the home team to fear is that the former West Ham academy graduate has never been on the losing side in five tussles with this forthcoming foe.
With no Hull clean sheets to speak of since the fortuitous shut out they inflicted upon QPR in the campaign’s curtain-raiser, it’s difficult to envisage the visitors not scoring here and when the goals are going in, Lampard is never far away from the action.
