Elmohamady’s Hull continue poor form against Swansea


An early Ki Sung-yueng goal was enough to beat the Tigers at the KC stadium today as Elmohamady’s failed to score in their 3rd match in a row.

There were chances at both ends in the opening ten minutes of the game, before Shelvey’s 25-yard- effort deflected off of the Korean and deceived Hull City ‘keeper McGregor.

Robertson was inches away from scoring the equaliser minutes later, as his powerful shot clipped the bar following some good build-up play.

Hull midfielder Jake  Livermore then picked up his 5th yellow card of the season, one that earned him a one-match suspension

The woodwork came to Hull’s rescue for the first time of the game on the half-hour mark; Shelvey’s low drive from distance rattled the inside of the right-hand post.

Just before the half-time whistle, Jelavic had a goal ruled out for offside.

Moments after the the second half kicked off, Hull wasted two good chances to equalise. A Gaston Ramirez 25-yard free kick went narrowly over the bar and a Jelavic header was pushed behind for a corner by Fabianiski, following a fine Elmohamady cross.

Swansea looked determined to extend their lead, and McGregor made a fine save to deny Shelvey in the 55th minute.

The first two substitutions of the game were made moments later, as Swansea’s Emnes and Hull’s Aluko replaced Tom Carroll and Alex Bruce respectively.

Aluko had an instant impact; he earned his side a close range free kick as we was caught late on the right. However, Ramirez, once again failed to make use of the set piece.

In the 74th minute, French striker Gomis was denied a certain goal by the post. A minute later, Gomis came off for in-form striker Wilfried Bony.

Hull then used their remaining 2 substitutions with 10 minutes to go, as Maguire and Sagbo replaced Davies and Jelavic respectively, which had no impact as all in their quest to equalise.

Right before the final whistle, a Bony effort in extra time was deflected behind for a corner by Chester, before a late penalty claim by Sagbo in injury time wasn’t given by the referee.

Bruce’s side has now failed to score in four of their last five league matches, while Swansea will be celebrating a first win over Hull since 2003, when they famously triumphed 4-2 to preserve their Football League status.

Hull City, who have now gone 10 games without a win, sit in 19th place with 13 points from 17 games and are to face Sunderland on the 26th of December at the Stadium of Light, while Swansea climb to 8th with 25 points.
