Elmohamady returns as Bournemouth humiliate Hull City
Stanislas scored twice and assisted twice as Bournemouth battered Hull 6-1 in Mike Phelan’s first game as permanent Hull manager, with the other goals coming from Daniels, Wilson, Cook and Gosling, with Ryan Mason scoring for Hull.
Bournemouth XI: Boruc Smith; Francis; Cook; Daniels; Ibe; Arter; Surman; Wilshere; Stanislas; Wilson.
Hull XI: Marshall; Elmohamady; Davies; Maguire; Robertson; Clucas; Livermore; Mason; Snodgrass; Maloney; Keane.
Hull got off to the worst possible start 5 minutes into the match, as a Junior Stanislas free kick hit the post and rebounded to Charlie Daniels who emphatically finished past Marshall.
Bournemouth continued to dominate the first half, however Ryan Mason equalised against the run of play with a fortunate deflected effort.
Hull didn’t stay in the game for long though, as Stanislas again provided the goal, this time for the domineering centre back Steve Cook who towered over the defenders to make it 2-1.
Stanislas turned from provider to scorer as he doubled the Cherries’ advantage with a composed finish just before half time.
Bournemouth kept the momentum going in the second half, as Stanislas again, as Stanislas doubled his tally with a finish at the back post after Adam Smith’s low cross.
Norway international Josh King set up a fifth for Bournemouth, as their talisman from last season Callum Wilson headed home from close range.
Substitute Dan Gosling piled on the embarrassment for Hull as he made it 6-1 after a cross from Charlie Daniels to the edge of the box.
