Moyes confirms he will stay on as Sunderland manager

In an odd twist of fate, the Tigers will now hope Sunderland can continue their winning run when they host Swansea next weekend with Hull visiting fellow strugglers Crystal Palace.

"We want to do our best and control what it is possible to control - the game, our opponents and our players".

Silva, out for a fortnight after suffering a blow to his knee during the FA Cup semi-final defeat by Arsenal, opened the scoring after two minutes.

It was Hull's first home defeat under manager Marco Silva, who rued costly lapses in concentration but put on a courageous face ahead of what will be a tense home straight.

Pickford made a stunning one handed save to tip over a header from Lazar Markovic shortly after too, as Hull realised they had to turn up the heat as Sunderland - who went close again through Defoe - threatened more themselves.

"The Premier League is tough".

It's never been done before in the Premier League and would quite something to see a "winner takes all" scenario where two teams are fighting for a place in the top flight.

Goals from Billy Jones and Jermain Defoe in the second half gave relegated Sunderland the three points in a game full of chances at the KCOM Stadium. This was Hull's first defeat at the KCOM Stadium since Marco Silva was appointed manager in January. Jones was left undetected in the box to dive and head Honeyman's corner over the line after O'Shea's flick. Anything Hull did manage to must was denied by the ever impressive Jordan Pickford. "They punished us heavily", Palace manager Sam Allardyce said.

"We scored some good goals at the time but we also had a goalkeeper who made a couple of crucial saves and that helped us as well".

"Everyone knows their position and where they will play next season, but this is a risky game for us and we have to respect them even more and go about it the right way".

Hull boss Marco Silva had been unbeaten in his previous 41 home league games, a record dating back to his time in charge of Portuguese side Estoril in 2014 and encompassing spells with Sporting Lisbon and Olympiakos. The outcome leaves Premier League safety out of the Tigers' hands with just two games remaining.

Bournemouth secured their top-flight status for another year after a 2-2 draw against Stoke at Dean Court.

"Of course the second goal is offside, but the first is from a set piece".

West Brom ended their goal drought with a 2-2 draw at Burnley, who are not yet completely clear of relegation worries.
