Elmohamady’s Hull eliminate Ramadan’s Stoke City from EFL Cup
Sobhi was included in the starting lineup for the first time since joining the Potters, while Ahmed Elmohamady was subbed on by Michael Phelan in the 69th minute of the match.
Despite gaining the upper hand in the 25th minute of the first half through Marko Arnautovic’s shot from outside the box, Stoke City found it difficult to break the lock once again and double the lead.
The home team started the game in high gear with several chances in the opening fifteen minutes. In the 13th minute, Ramadan Sobhi’s found Wilfried Bony in the box, but the latter’s shot was deflected for a corner.
In the 28th minute, Ramadan Sobhi found space on the left wing and played the ball to Bony once again, but the striker failed to connect to the ball.
Just one minute before half-time, Ryan Mason equalized for The Tigers through an unstoppable half-volley after latching onto a long ball from James Weir.
In the second half, Stoke City continued threatening Hull’s goal, but without success. Ramadan continued his impressive performances on the left flank, but with no real danger.
Despite having more shots on goal and more ball possession, Stoke City fell behind in the dying minutes of the match when the Tigers’ Markus Henriksen blasted the ball into the goal. The score at full time was 2-1 in favor of the away team.
Next up, Elmohamady’s Hull City will face Bristol City in the fourth round of the EFL Cup in late October.
