Well that brings an end to our Premier League live text for another day. We're back tomorrow with live coverage of Liverpool vs Stoke City, but until then it's goodbye.


Full time: Hull City 0-3 Manchester City

Relief for Manchester City, who go second in the Premier League, after Yaya Toure and Kelechi Iheanacho's second half goals, added to by Curtis Davies' own goal help beat Hull City. The Tigers were spirited throughout, but Andrew Robertson's foul on Raheem Sterling opened the door for Toure to score the opening from the spot and that opened the floodgates. Liverpool drop to third before they face Stoke tomorrow and they must respond to close the gap to Chelsea. Hull meanwhile will finish the year in the bottom three.

The result flatters City now as Sterling crosses from the left and Davies is in the wrong place at the wrong time and turns into his own net.

Yaya Toure named man-of-the-match by broadcasters Sky Sports, but hard to think that City would have won this game without the madness of Andrew Robertson.


Goal: Hull 0-2 Manchester City (Kelechi Iheanacho)

Class eventually prevails as City get their second which should be enough to see them go second in the Premier League. De Bruyne feeds Silva, whose first time cross is slid into an empty net by Iheanacho. Robertson's error has opened this game up and City have taken full advantage of Hull's fallibility.

Games as tight as these are often decided on moments of brilliance, or a mistake; and in the case of this clash an error seems to have decided the result. Andrew Robertson needlessly scythes down Raheem Sterling and Robert Madley has no choice but to point to the spot. Yaya Toure steps up and sends Marshall the wrong way. The Premier League conceding specialists strike again.


Penalty to Manchester City

A quarter of the match remaining and this is anyones frankly. City have been far from convincing, while Hull have given so much to trying to get even a point.


Off the line! Hull go within inches of taking the lead. City at sixes and sevens from a corner and when Bravo rushes off his line, Dawson loops a header over him and it was a goal-line clearance from Sagna keeps the scores level.


Kelechi Iheanacho being prepped on the touchline as City look to enhance their attacking options. Guardiola's side have been devoid of a real thrust during the first 55 minutes, can the Nigerian change that?


Hull pushing forward and they're leaving themselves wide open at the other end. Kevin de Bruyne wrong-foots Marshall with a stinging shot from 20 yards, which rattled the post. The closest City have come, by some distance.


Difficult chance but the openings keep coming for Hull. City are caught out with a high line from a free-kick and Maguire gets goal-side but can only turn his volley over the bar.


Pep Guardiola has cut a frustrated figure through the game.

Sagna makes a fine block to deny Snodgrass at the back post. City are dominating the ball - they completed nearly 400 passes in the first half - but Hull are creating the better openings.


Back underway at Hull. No changes at the break, with City having already had to withdraw John Stones.


Half time: Hull 0-0 Manchester City

The Tigers are set to climb off the bottom of the Premier League after blunting Man City at the KCOM Stadium. Hull have pressed high and disrupted City's flow, with long range efforts all Marshall has had to deal with. Pep Guardiola badly needs a plan B.


Two minutes added on at the KCOM Stadium. Not much to write home about, it has to be said. Hull have been decent.


Raheem Sterling has been watched closely by Hull throughout the first half.

City produce their best move of the game as Sterling feed Nolito, who tries to find Silva but Hull cut it out again.


Another long passing move ends with Sterling turning inside, getting a yard but blazing over when he gets a sight of goal. Hull are squeezing the space in and around their box.


Nolito hits one half-heartedly and Marshall gets down and makes an easy save. Al the pressure going one-way, but nothing that will overly frighten the home faithful.
