Elmohamady scores as Hull ease past Everton
Ahmed Elmohamady scored his first goal for Hull in over a year, as the Tigers beat Everton 2-0 at the KC Stadium.
Both sets of players started well with high levels of energy and plenty of endeavour shown by both teams. However it was hull who struck first; Egyptian international Elmohamady beat Baines to the ball after Robertson’s whipped cross to head neatly past Joel.
10 minutes later Hull struck again, former Toffees striker Jelavic was played in through on goal and he looped the ball over the outrushing Joel to make it 2-0 at half time.
In the second half the introduction of Romelu Lukaku gave the visitors more impetus but yet again Everton’s poor defending contributed to their downfall. Everton defender Alcaraz was given a second yellow card for what seemed as a harsh decision after he took down Jelavic three minutes from time.
The result lifts the Tigers away from the relegation zone, while Everton drop into 13th place as they continue to struggle this season.
