PL Round-Up: Hull relegated; Reds back in third as Spurs beat Utd on White Hart Lane farewell

Hull City are the third and final team to be relegated from the Premier League after they were beaten 4-0 by Crystal Palace.

With Swansea winning at Sunderland on Saturday, Hull knew that they needed to win at Selhurst Park but they were outclassed by Sam Allardyce’s side.

Marco Silva’s men went behind just two minutes in when defender Andrea Ranocchia missed a simple clearance, allowing Wilfried Zaha to run clear and slot beyond goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic.

Christian Benteke’s header doubled Palace’s lead before a Luka Milivojevic penalty and a Patrick van Aanholt strike completed Hull’s misery.

The Tigers, who failed to register a shot on target on Sunday, will join Sunderland and Middlesbrough in the Championship next season.

Liverpool moved back up to third after they hammered West Ham United 4-0 at the London Stadium, which means victory over Middlesbrough in their final game will confirm their place in the Champions League next season.

The opening goal came on the half-hour mark with Daniel Sturridge scoring his first goal since January after being picked out by Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho then took charge with two goals before Divock Origi completed the scoring with the fourth.

Liverpool are now odds on to make the top-four and are 1-12 from 1-2 now to make the top-four.

Tottenham’s final game at White Hart Lane ended in triumph as they beat Manchester United 2-1.

Spurs, who will spend next season playing at Wembley until their new home is complete, took the lead just six-minutes in through Victor Wanyama.

Harry Kane doubled their lead just after the break, and although United pulled one back through Wayne Rooney, it was not enough to spoil Spurs farewell to their beloved home.

The result does mean that United’s outside hopes of finishing in the top-four have gone.
