Marco Silva left frustrated after "surprise performance" against Sunderland

Marco Silva left frustrated after

Sunderland manager David Moyes has said club owner Ellis Short wants him to remain in charge of the team next season. "I saw some rubbish figures talked about in the papers today; whoever came up with those is completely wrong".

Manchester City were the only top-six club in action and took advantage with a 5-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace who themselves are not safe from the drop after a third consecutive defeat left them in 16th spot.

"It's disappointing", Silva told the BBC after his side missed a barrage of chances against the visitors, who completed a league double over Hull after winning the reverse fixture 3-0.

The Black Cats are preparing for life in the second tier and under-fire manager Moyes wants to build on the morale-boosting defeat of Hull against the Swans. Further, if Moyes does stay, it will not be with the blessing of many Sunderland fans.

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

Shishani, also referred to as "Omar the Chechen", was a top ISIS commander in Syria, but was confirmed killed in a July 2016 US airstrike.

"We've got about 10 players out of contract and we will speak to them next week".

"It was one of those days", left-back Robertson said of the Sunderland defeat.

"They tried to do everything too fast, and fast and well is not easy". Of course it is a not a good afternoon for us but it doesn't change nothing. "For me it's clear".

The hosts immediately drove at the Sunderland backline but Pickford made a stunning reflex save from Hernandez's near-post shot and, as desperation sapped Hull's composure in the closing stages, Defoe stole in to convert Sebastian Larsson's free-kick and shatter Silva's air of home-field invincibility.

Pickford was not the only academy graduate on show at Hull. Ten minutes before Jones opening the scoring, the Sunderland goalkeeper's full-length save of a Lazar Markovic header denied Hull the best chance that came their way.

The Tigers had taken 19 points from a possible 21 in the Portuguese boss' seven previous matches at the KCOM Stadium and had identified this game as one which they must win.

Hull will play against fifth from bottom Crystal Palace on 14 May, in what is sure to be a crucial match for their hopes in staying up.

Speaking after the final whistle, Jeff Stelling said: "It is a body blow for Hull's hopes of survival".

After their loss to Bournemouth last weekend, Sunderland were officially relegated from the Premier League. Bet: the victory of Hull City - P1. And should the worst happen for the Yorkshire club, relegation could tarnish the reputation of Silva, just as it has that of Moyes.
