Hull relegated, Crystal Palace secures Premier League status

Silva, who has been linked with the managerial positions at West Ham, Southampton and Watford, accrued 22 points from a possible 27 on home soil, but failed to replicate that form on Hull's travels - the club picking up an abject two points from a potential 27 available.

Christian Benteke's goal in the 34th minute effectively put both the match and Hull City's season to bed, as Palace rolled to a 4-0 thrashing of Hull that both confirmed their own safety and condemned the Tigers to a return to the Championship in August. After winning only three out of 20 league games since winning promotion, Mike Phelan was sacked in January.

RELEGATED Hull's manager Marco Silva says he will "analyse" what went wrong as his side look to bounce back up at the first attempt.

The Independent reports that the Saints are looking to change their boss just a year after hiring Claude Puel, with many at St Mary's unhappy with his management in 2016/17.

"For me, it's easy what the club needs to do differently - you need to prepare better". I will give the board and the chairman my opinion, about what they need to do differently to make sure this doesn't happen.

Zuma also says tourism is now responsible for 1.5 million jobs and they plan to grow employment in the sector to over 2.5 million by 2025.

"It is two different seasons (within 2016/17). We started to lose in pre-season when we were making our preparation", Silva said.

After a hard start to his reign, with the club 17th in the Premier League table, Allardyce has managed to transform Crystal Palace's season, securing victories over the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool andArsenal, and the eagles are now safe from relegation heading into the final fixture of the season. "Building for the future is the more enjoyable part and is far more important because it relieves the stress on the club". "We've just dealt with the pressure going into these last four games". Hull could barely fill its bench for its opening league game in mid-August, which they actually won at home against defending champion Leicester.

Palace had needed a point to stay up and their dominant display completed manager Sam Allardyce's latest survival mission after he rescued Sunderland last season. "The fans that travelled today and have supported us all season, it is much appreciated by all the players and staff, thank you #hcafc".

It's not often that a manager improves his reputation in a season where his team is relegated.
