Hull City's Egyptian winger Ahmed Elmohamady has hailed the Tigers after Friday's win over Sunderland, eyes another victory against Leicester City on Sunday.

Hull thrashed the Black Cats 3-1 to secure its first win in the last ten Premier League matches.

"Massive 3 points today away from home, everyone were class, big game on Sunday! hopefully another win, thanks to the fans," Elmohamady said via Twitter after the match.

Besides assisting the third goal, featuring against Sunderland was a special event for Elmohamady as it marked his 112 appearance in the Premier League.

The Egyptian became the most Arabian footballer who appears in the Premier League after breaking the record of retired Moroccan player Hassan Kachloul who made 111 appearances with Southampton and Aston Villa.

Elmohamady played 56 matches in Premier League with former team Sunderland before reaching the same number with Hull.

The 27-year-old winger, who started in the Premier League's 2011 season coming from Egypt's outfit ENPPI, managed recently to save a regular place in Hull City's squad.

Hull currently lies at the 17th place of the Premier League's table with 16 points, 29 behind leaders Chelsea.
