Sunderland’s fate was finally sealed as defeat at home to Bournemouth ended their 10-year stay in the Premier League. Hull are doing their best to not join them and their recent point at St Mary’s could prove to be priceless come the end of the season as it helped maintain their two-point buffer over Swansea in 18th.
Hull have turned the KCOM Stadium into something of a fortress since Marco Silva took charge, winning six of seven unbeaten matches with half of these victories by two or more goals. Silva has been fortunate that the last five of these fixtures have been against bottom-eight teams and while the Tigers have managed to net at least twice in each of these games, they’ve kept only one clean sheet.
An abysmal run of eight defeats from 10 winless matches for Sunderland, where they failed to score in nine, has meant upcoming fixtures against Hull and Swansea have come too little too late. With their future determined it may allow them to play with a little more freedom so we wouldn’t be surprised to see them push for goals here. Alternatively, they may have completely given up the ghost, which seems more likely given how their season’s gone, we’re siding with Hull -1 on the handicap.
