Hull completes trio of northeast clubs relegated from EPL

Hull City have been relegated following their 4-0 defeat against Crystal Palace on Sunday. The same will be broadcasted on Sky Sports 1/HD channel in the UK.

"We tried but conceded again and it finished the game".

Arsenal's late surge had put Juergen Klopp's side under huge pressure but they responded in style and will definitely finish in the top-four if they beat relegated Middlesbrough at Anfield on the final day of the season next Sunday.

I like the chances of a Hull victory as it seems the most pivotal part of the equation and has the biggest knock-on effect for the following weekend as all options will remain open.

Such a comprehensive defeat was in-keeping with the club's bad away form this season, winning just one game on the road as they slipped further and further into the mire after a positive start to the campaign under Mike Phelan.

Silva sent on Shaun Maloney and Jarrod Bowen at half-time, but Hull lacked poise and Palace held them at bay easily.

"It's not the moment to talk about the situation", he said.

"We have one more game now and we have to play with pride and respect for the club".

The Eagles still possess tremendous quality in the attacking third to cause problems even for the best around but the mindset of a point being enough is a very unsafe game to play. What happens does not depend on what they say to me.

The Portuguese, 39, had impressed in keeping them in contention to preserve their Premier League status after he inherited a struggling team with little stability back in January. Sam Allardyce, of course, the reliable relegation buster.

Silva will be without on-loan Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic (ankle) for the last two matches, but right-back Omar Elabdellaoui, sidelined since mid-March due to a back problem, is available.

Meanwhile, Omar Elabdellaoui is doubtful.

Head coach Marco Silva has no new injury or suspension worries.

The visitors were a broken side by the end and Crystal Palace effectively walked in the fourth on the stroke of 90 minutes after the Eagles exposed lots of space within the Hull defence after which Patrick van Aanholt was put clean through by James McArthur and van Aanholt made no mistake with the finish. Subs: Davies, Huddlestone, Elabdellaoui, Maloney, Mbokani, Marshall, Bowen.

For Hull City this season is not by hearsay hard, and so far, the "tigers" are at risk of remaining among the losers of the championship. "We need to win the games". Despite Hull's relegation, few reputations have grown during the second half of this season as manager Marco Silva's. Despite being well struck and forcing Wayne Hennessey to save, Clucas slipped while shooting, and at 1-0 down cut such a frustrated figure at having lost his footing it already looked as though he and his team-mates felt a positive result beyond them. However, late goals from Djorkaeff and Delroy Facey provided a 4-2 victory over Birmingham which acted as a catalyst for Bolton to win six and draw five of their last 13 games and condemned West Ham to the drop instead.
