KXIP vs KKR Live Score

This time around he's helmed a safety run for Crystal Palace, who buried Hull City with a 4-0 win at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

Hull never recovered from Andrea Ranocchia gifting Wilfried Zaha a third-minute goal on an afternoon when the Tigers realistically needed to win to take their survival chances to the final weekend.

The defeat means an immediate return to the second tier for last season's Championship Play-Off winners.

"It was a great effort from the players today", Allardyce told Sky Sports.

Hull, who have struggled to pick up points on the road all season, briefly threatened a comeback, but it wasn't to be, and Luka Milivojevic made the game safe for Palace with a late penalty after Jeff after Schlupp was upended by Michael Dawson. Hull City, visibly deflated and defeated, trudged through the remaining seconds knowing the imminent whistle was both blessed relief from this embarrassment but at the same time a death sentence for their Premier League status.

"So I won't put them under any more pressure than they need to be under, but they'll still feel the pressure no matter what and how the deal with it is going to be the key factor".

"We have to analyse with the board and chairman", said the Portuguese after his side's relegation was confirmed.

"We had a slip, mainly through injuries, but what a way to finish in front of your fans with a 4-0 win!"

Willy Caballero's fine save from Christian Benteke in the first half against Palace showed he is a more than an able deputy, and he will continue for the season's final three games.

He is set to meet owner Ellis Short and chief executive Martin Bain at the end of a hard season to discuss the blueprint with which he presented them in the wake of relegation, and that meeting is likely to determine his fate.

To say the Hull fans look disgruntled is an understatement. He explained "Crystal Palace only really need a point but I don't think they will play for just a point". We have thanked them all year. Three or four weeks ago everybody thought it was between ourselves, Middlesbrough and Swansea and nobody put Crystal Palace in the fight. During the season, Hull City managed to give out a few good matches, mainly with favorites, on which they managed to tune better. "Then we have to play our game to cause them problems". We haven't changed anything but of course have analysed the last game.

Tomkins almost doubled Palace's lead after 11 minutes when he rose highest to meet Jason Puncheon's inswinging corner but his header flashed wide across goal.

"The next level of the recruitment is critical to the team being more consistent and achieving more in the Premier League rather than a fight against relegation".
