Hull completes trio of northeast clubs relegated from EPL

Penalty pain for Hull as relegated Tigers set Premier League record

Needing victory to keep their slim hopes alive, the Tigers suffered the worst possible start as a awful missed clearance from Andrea Ranocchia let Wilfried Zaha in to score in the third minute.

Marco Silva's side knew only a victory would give them a realistic chance of staying up, but goals from Wilfried Zaha, Christian Benteke, Luka Milivojevic and Patrick van Aanholt consigned them to the drop.

Silva's side had almost 74 per cent of the possession in the second half but did not manage a shot on target in the whole game, and the 39-year-old was left to rue their bad start and poor decision-making. "It's not a good moment". But we have to show this was a bad day at the office.

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

"We tried to change things at half time with another creative midfielder and Jarrod Bowen on the right".

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. "In adversity you have to become stronger and make sure you don't make those mistakes again so you learn from it", he said on taking the Palace reins.

Hull were bottom when Silva took charge and he led them to six wins in eight home games but they failed to get a win in nine away matches. "I respect too much the club and these fans, who have been incredible since I came here". This club has been in the Premier League for [four years] and wants to grow with it now.

In truth, it was Hull's woeful away form this season that ultimately sent them down.

"The pressure has been on us but we've delivered in the last four games", said the Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, whose team had gleaned 10 points in that period while Hull lost four of their last six matches.

"We had to start at that (defensive) base if we were going to get anywhere".

"We have to analyse with the board and chairman", said the Portuguese after his side's relegation was confirmed. We'll see [if I will be manager next season].

"There is Hull we need to compete against, and the size of the game". Our form has been awful.

It's a big game this weekend. It's a disappointing day. Twelve months ago, it was an unbelievable feeling [to be promoted]. As a result of that, I am expecting a hard fought contest with a lot of heart involved. It's clear we did our best, to try and play at a higher level, and to fight until this moment.
