Hull completes trio of northeast clubs relegated from EPL

Hull City's final two Premier League games are equivalent to Champions League finals as the club fight to avoid relegation, on-loan defender Andrea Ranocchia has said ahead of Sunday's encounter against Crystal Palace.

Marco Silva declined to commit his future to Hull City and intends to meet the club's owners this week for talks after a heavy defeat at Crystal Palace condemned his team to relegation back to the Championship after one chaotic year among the elite.

"We actually put ourselves in a very positive position with five games to go".

Palace had needed only a draw to preserve their Premier League status but effectively secured victory with Christian Benteke's 17th goal of a largely hard season.

Hull captain Michael Dawson admitted the team deserved relegation after poor form.

The triumphant afternoon capped what has been a topsy turvy 12 months for Allardyce that started with him keeping Sunderland in the Premier League and later saw him appointed and dismissed as England manager in record time before he took over at Crystal Palace. Luka Milivojevic and Patrick van Aanholt added further finishes, while the result also secured Swansea's Premier League status.

Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, the governor of Indonesia's capital city, Jakarta , was given a two-year prison sentence on Tuesday. Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama was "convincingly proven guilty of blasphemy" and ordered his arrest.

Palace came into the clash on the back of three straight defeats, a run that had drawn them back into trouble.

Hull, however, will join Middlesbrough and Sunderland in dropping down to the Championship for next season. "I have always said that the fight would go on until the end of the season and we will continue our fight until then". "It's not a good moment. They held a high line so we put a quality ball behind and obviously that's a great start".

After the relative mid-table comfort of his West Ham tenure, Allardyce returned to fire fighting by replacing Dick Advocaat at Sunderland, with the Black Cats having taken three points from eight games. "We did our best to improve the boys in the team and that was our job". I will give the board and the chairman my opinion, about what they need to do differently to make sure this doesn't happen.

If the Tigers thought today wasn't going to be their day then a period of play around the second goal would have confirmed that.

The last Premier League meeting between the two in December was a 3-3 draw, seeing as many goals (6) as in the previous four combined.

Zaha, later named Palace fans' player of the year, was a constant menace to a Hull side that dominated possession in pursuit of an equaliser but looked more likely to concede from a counter-attack.
