West Ham United 1-0 Hull City

(19′ mins): It was the home side who started on the front foot, with Fabian Balbuena and Felipe Anderson trying their luck during the opening moments. Soon after, the busy Ashby tested Tigers stopper, George Long, with a fierce strike after cutting in from the right.

But the opening goal came shortly before the twenty-minute mark – Former Hull man, Robert Snodgrass met Andriy Yarmolenko’s cross with a crisp left-footed volley – Long left motionless as the ball fizzed low into the corner of the visitors’ net.
