What entertainment

Hull City 3-3 Crystal Palace

Great entertainment at the KCOM Stadium.

The Tigers went ahead through Robert Snodgrass's controversial penalty before Christian Benteke equalised with another spot-kick.

Wilfried Zaha blasted the Eagles ahead, but Hull benefited from poor Palace defending as Adama Diomande and Jake Livermore scored twice in a six-minute period to put the hosts back in front.

But substitute Fraizer Campbell, who played 38 times for Hull in the 2007-08 season, headed in from Zaha's cross to make it 3-3.  

FULL-TIME - Hull 3-3 Crystal Palace

It is all over. What a game.

Into injury-time. Will there be another late twist?

'Poor from Hull'

Kevin Kilbane

Former Everton and Sunderland winger on Final Score

That is such poor marking at such a late stage as well from Hull. They allow Wilfried Zaha so much space and it is an easy cross for him. Poor marking all round from Hull's point of view.

GOAL - Hull City 3-3 Crystal Palace

Fraizer Campbell (Crystal Palace)

What a game. Palace draw level again, and this time it is ex-Hull striker Fraizer Campbell who is celebrating.

The excellent Wilfried Zaha, who won the penalty for Palace's first, before scoring their second, floats in a ball to the near post and substitute Campbell gets in front of marker Curtis Davies to head Palace level.

Hull City 3-2 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace still sense they can get something from this one. Jason Puncheon, who has looked lively throughout, cuts in on to his left foot but shoots over the top.

Hull 3-2 Crystal Palace

3 - Hull have scored as many goals today as they did in their previous six Premier League games combined (3). Unleashed.

'Sides at the bottom getting worried'

Hull 3-2 Crystal Palace

John Hartson

Ex-Wales striker on Final Score

I talked about Palace coming back from a goal down and now Hull are all of a sudden in the lead. That's Swansea now still in the bottom three.

Leicester play Man City and West Ham go to Liverpool - those two sides will be worried.


Hull City 3-2 Crystal Palace

Almost a fourth for Hull. Sam Clucas gets himself on the edge of a cross and glances a header at goal, but it is just off target.

GOAL - Hull City 3-2 Crystal Palace

Jake Livermore (Hull City)

Awful defending again from Crystal Palace. And again they are punished. 

Jake Livermore is allowed to run into the penalty area, past a non-existent challenge from Eagles substitute Yohan Cabaye, with the midfielder also getting past Scott Dann.

Livermore slots into the net and from 2-1 down six minutes ago, Hull now lead.

Hull City 2-2 Crystal Palace

Adama Diomande, by the way, scored the first goal of the season in Hull's 2-1 win over Leicester on the opening day of the campaign.

This was his first Premier League goal since then.

Adama Diomande celebrates

GOAL - Hull City 2-2 Crystal Palace

Adama Diomande (Hull City)

Hull were not behind for long and it is delight for Mike Phelan but despair for Palace boss Alan Pardew.

Adama Diomande gets the ball on the edge of the penalty area and, despite Scott Dann and Damien Delaney both in close attention, Diomande is skilful enough to produce a sharp turn to take both players out of the game.

Diomande then slots past Wayne Hennessey for his first goal in 13 games.

But wait just a minute...

GOAL - Hull City 1-2 Crystal Palace

Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace)

Crystal Palace were behind, but now they lead after a blaster from Wilfried Zaha.

A corner is partially cleared and Zaha picks up the ball 30 yards out.

He produces a step over to get into the box, and with Sam Clucas and Tom Huddlestone unable to get a challenge in, Zaha unleashes a furious shot that gave David Marshall no chance.

Hull City 1-1 Crystal Palace

It is end to end at the moment and Jason Puncheon forces a good save from David Marshall. Wilfried Zaha knocks a short pass to Puncheon, who drills an effort at goal, but Marshall saves.

Hull City 1-1 Crystal Palace

Hull City break down the left with Andrew Robertson but none of his team-mates can keep up and his fizzed low cross is well ahead of any of his team-mates.

Moments later, an intelligent pass from Tom Huddlestone looks to have created a chance for Adama Diomande, but excellent defending from James McArthur stifles the threat.

Hull City 1-1 Crystal Palace

22 – Christian Benteke has now scored against 22 different Premier League teams; the same total as Romelu Lukaku. Compatriots.

Hull City 1-1 Crystal Palace

A lively run from Jason Puncheon takes him to the edge of the Hull penalty area, but he is crowed out by home defenders so instead tries to slot a pass into Christian Benteke.

But the Belgian is not on the same wavelength and cannot anticipate the intention.


Hull City 1-1 Crystal Palace

Close to Hull retaking the lead. Tom Huddlestone produces a cute chip to release Adama Diomande, but his first touch is not as good as it needs to be and can only shoot wide.

Moments later Diomande produces a step over to create space for a shot, but Wayne Hennessey dives to his right to hold on to the low effort.

GOAL - Hull 1-1 Crystal Palace

Christian Benteke (Crystal Palace)

So, so calm from Christian Benteke. He strolls up and, while looking at Hull goalkeeper David Marshall, side-foots the ball into the bottom corner. We are level again and it is 1-1.

Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

For the second time today referee Mike Jones has pointed to the penalty spot, and for the second time today it is a soft one.

Hull only partially clear a corner and it falls to Wilfried Zaha who jinks and turns in the top corner of the penalty area. Zaha falls over the leg of Robert Snodgrass, who scored a controversial spot-kick earlier today, and it is a penalty.

Unlike the earlier decision, there is contact, but you would never be happy with the decision going against your side.

Christian Benteke to take the penalty.

Corner to Palace...

Palace change system

46: Palace kick off. It looks as if the Eagles have gone three at the back, with Ward and Fryers providing width... [1-0] #HULCRY

Can the change in system get Crystal Palace back into it?


Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

Within a minute, Crystal Palace's Jason Puncheon gets a booking, and it is a costly one as he now misses the midweek game against Manchester United.

Back under way

Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

Alan Pardew is seen having a chat with referee Mike Jones as the teams head back out for the second half.

This penalty chat will run and run.

Anyway, Hull lead 1-0. Palace have made one change at half-time with Zeki Fryers coming on for Andros Townsend.

'Rattled by that penalty decision'

Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

Guy Mowbray

Match of the Day commentator

Crystal Palace player have clearly been rattled by that penalty decision.

There are boos from the Palace fans and they feel hard done by. Mike Phelan will argue his team have played well enough to warrant a 1-0 lead at half-time.


Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

And that is the break. Hull lead through that hugely controversial penalty won by, and then scored by Robert Snodgrass.

Snodgrass scores


Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

Hull's Ahmed Elmohamady talks himself into the referee's book with a show of dissent. James McArthur then also sees yellow for a foul on Sam Clucas. We may not end up 11v11 later on.

Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

Robert Snodgrass's set piece is met by Harry Maguire, who heads well off target. Maguire has been heavily involved, but his attempts have not actually gone anywhere near the goal.

Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

Hull attack down the left wing and Andrew Robertson's cross is headed behind by Jason Puncheon. Corner for the hosts.

Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

Just to make you Palace fans feel worse, just to remind you that Robert Snodgrass was already on a booking before falling to the ground untouched to win a penalty.

So, instead of picking up what would have been a second yellow card for diving, he scored from the spot to put Hull ahead.

Alan Pardew's post-match interview may be a bit lively later on. He may not be too impressed with Snodgrass or referee Mike Jones.

Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

6 – Robert Snodgrass has scored or assisted six of Hull’s 12 PL goals this season; three times as many as any Hull player. Converted.

Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

You lot are not too impressed with Robert Snodgrass's conduct to earn his side a penalty, which he then converted.

Ollie Thomas: Debate? The most blatant dive I've ever seen.

Palace Fan Pete: Nowhere near him an absolute disgraceful dive from Snodgrass.

Ryan Shivashankar: What a dive. This is why we need video officials. Richest league in the world you would expect to have this but still nope.

Snodgrass goes down

Hull City 1-0 Crystal Palace

Some shooting practice is needed for Harry Maguire on Monday. For the second time he gets the ball outside the box. If his first effort was bad, this is each worse. High, wide and not very handsome.

'We have to eradicate diving'

Hull 1-0 Crystal Palace

John Hartson

Ex-Wales striker on Final Score

It's a dive. I know Snoddy really well and I think when he looks at that tonight he'll know he bought it off the referee. We saw it last week with Dele Alli and Kyle Naughton.

You cannot let diving carry on, we have to eradicate diving from football.

GOAL - Hull 1-0 Crystal Palace

Robert Snodgrass (penalty)

Robert Snodgrass sends Wayne Hennessey the wrong way and blasts the ball high into the net. Hull lead. But we have definitely not heard the last of that penalty decision.

Snodgrass goal


Hull City 0-0 Crystal Palace

A penalty for Hull, and it is a hugely controversial one. Scott Dann is adjudged to have fouled Robert Snodgrass, who will take the spot-kick.

The replays show Dann sliding in ready to make a challenge, but he pulls his leg away as Snodgrass crumbles to the floor under no contact.

Dann is furious, and rightly so. A yellow card for the Palace man follows, just to make him feel even worse.
