SUMMARY: Hull City 1-4 Newcastle United

Not since the Southampton away game have Hull City succumbed to a scoreline like this. That day at St Mary's was a rare off day for the Tigers at the time, but unfortunately, the home match with Newcastle United was another, as City gifted all the points to the visiting Tynesiders with some wretched defending and a catalogue of missed scoring opportunities.

Bad day at the office...



Newcastle by contrast were in clinical form and ruthlessly pounced on any mistake City made with a goal. Simply put, it wasn't the Tigers' day and the hosts fell behind when Alex Bruce missed a double chance to score and Newcastle scampered up the other end to go in front through Moussa Sissoko. Jelavic then hit the bar and Elmohamady put a free header wide, before a shocking mistake from Alex Bruce saw the defender cough up possession and Loic Remy raced away to give Newcastle a 0-2 half time lead.

After the interval, City got back in to it immediately with a Curtis Davies header, but minutes later a catastrophic short freekick from the hosts spoilt any hope of a comeback, as Sissoko slotted in his second goal of the game for the Magpies. City huffed through the remainder of the half but struggled to break down a hard working and resilient Newcastle team and the visitors got an injury time fourth goal, despite manager Alan Pardew being sent to the stands earlier for a touchline spat with home midfielder David Meyler.
