SUMMARY: Everton 4-0 Hull City

Hull City endured more rotten luck on the road again this weekend, but ultimately couldn't complain about losing this match against hugely in-form Everton. Yet, the scoreline flattered the hosts, especially so, given a moment of huge controversy that saw the Tigers reduced to 10 men during the second period.

Tigers become unstuck at the Toffees

A poor start from a defensive minded City side, saw Calvert-Lewin tuck in an 8th minute opener after a Barkley pass carved open the back line. The Tigers saw Markovic fluff a one on one and then blasted over another chance in a lively opening spell. Everton enjoyed the lion's share of play, but Clucas nipped between a Toffees defensive mix only to scoop his chip over the keeper, but onto the roof of the net. Although City trailed at the break, a sketchy home defence was providing hope of a result in the match.

The Tigers improved for the better after the break but struggled to fashion chances. Robertson flashed a shot wide from a deep lying freekick on 70 minutes, but moments later the game was turned on it's head when Huddlestone received his marching orders in what appeared an extremely harsh call for a tackle deemed to be over the top. Just 8 minutes later, Valencia tapped in to a depleted Hull City net to seal the game. In the final minutes, Lukaku added Everton's third and fourth to wrap up a miserable day for the Tigers.
