Shaqiri leaves Hull looking over shoulder

Shaqiri leaves Hull looking over shoulder”

Silva, who took over from Mike Phelan in January, has overseen a dramatic improvement in Hull's home form, with the team unbeaten in six home league games under their new manager.

Former Swansea City and Hull City defender Sam Ricketts says the Welsh club are favourites to be relegated of the two this season.

Marco Silva's Hull City have nit been able to replicate their strong home form in away matches. "We can't start like we did first 15 minutes".

The Tigers, who have taken only one point away from home in seven months, made a good fist of trying to change the pattern and played some good football at the times, subjecting the Stoke defence to some hard passages. Michael dawson was then beaten easily by Arnautovic, who while holding off Harry Maguire, thumped a shot into the net off the underside of the bar.

The boos which greeted the goal from the home support followed again when as part of a double substitution, Hughes replaced Berahino, though the men he brought on, Jonathan Walters and Crouch, nearly claimed a leveller.

The final nail in the coffin came ten minutes from time when Xherdan Shaqiri hit a fantastic effort from 30 yards that fired past Jakupovic.

"No-one wants to see it happen, but if they do go down, re-form and come back a stronger side then it's not the end of the world". Maguire's distribution was particularly eye-catching, Lazar Markovic and Kamil Grosicki were willing runners on the flanks and one pass from Alfred N'Diaye towards the end of the first half might have brought an equaliser, but for Grosicki electing to cross rather than shoot.

And incredibly, each of Shaqiri's last five strikes in the Premier League have all been scored from outside of the box, making the "Alpine Messi" one of the most unsafe players from distance in the country.

"He's all power and strength and muscularity", said an admiring Stoke boss Mark Hughes, "and he's a technician as well".

The Potters were in front early on when Marko Arnautovic latched onto a ball inside the box and lashed a strike into back of the net via the crossbar. Walters popped up on the left with time to send over a precision cross to the obvious target waiting in the middle, and Crouch rose high above Andrea Ranocchia to steer a well-placed header beyond Jakupovic's dive. The second half we reacted, started strong, scored the goal.
