Silva calls for calm after Hull lose to Sunderland

Middlesbrough

Sunderland manager David Moyes gestures on the touchline during the English Premier League soccer match between Hull City and Sunderland, at the KCOM Stadium, in Hull, England, Saturday May 6, 2017.

- Sunderland scored for only the third time in their last 14 Premier League games, winning two of those games, both away from home.

"I think we had played well but not taken anything from those games".

Hull fans have suddenly become Evertonians after this shock defeat. The striker's inept skew of a decent chance, as Hull chased an equaliser, was symbolic of a panicky, rushed performance.

"Ultimately there was big tension in some of the team".

"We knew what was at stake today and you know for the first 60 we've probably dominated them without really creating clear-cut chances and that's we needed to".

Hull looked the more confident in the first half and understandably so given their recent revival.

A major summer exodus is expected with the likes of Jordan Pickford, Lamine Kone, Vito Mannone, Fabio Borini, Jermain Defoe and Bryan Oviedo among those expected to leave.

"The thing to remember is this is not over", added Elmohamady. I said "I don't think any of those were hard, they were normal for you" I said 'don't start thinking you have done well!' That gives you an impression of where Jordan is, I think he is a big talent I really do. "He is by miles the best young newcomer in the league".

Therefore, the £17 million being mooted for Pickford will be viewed as a valuable injection of cash, rather than the painful loss of a homegrown star player.

Sunderland took advantage to go ahead through Billy Jones' close-range diving header after John O'Shea's flick-on from a corner.

Hull had won six of the last seven home games to give themselves a fighting chance of survival but only Jermain Defoe's wastefulness in front of goal kept the hosts in the match before Alfred N'Diaye missed a glaring opportunity to tap into an open net.

"That's been done by the players and led by Leon and we hope they get up there safely".

Clement expects the home crowd to make a difference against West Bromwich Albion if the relegation battle comes down to the final day of the season.

"The manager said exactly that after the Sunderland game was over. The result was coming and it was too late to help us with relegation but the performance was good". We didn't play well.

Pickford produced another good save to deny Abel Hernandez before Hull saw a penalty appeal turned away when Harry Maguire went down.

With Swansea City picking up a key 1-0 win against Everton, the Tigers are now a point behind The Swans and minus 5 on goal differential.

Ahmed Elmohamady is adamant Hull City are still up for the fight of avoiding the drop to the Championship this season.
