Alex Corps: Ican't believe Leighton Baines was still on the pitch after that horrible two footed tackle on the lino. Where's the consistency? 

Alex has his tongue firmly in cheek. I think. [see 21.40 entry]

'We want players with courage'

Hull 2-2 Everton

More from Hull boss Mike Phelan, speaking to BBC Sport: "We need more goals from all areas. We need to tighten up. We have a lot of work to do. It’s now a case of trying to bring players in to give us a chance going forward.

“Lots has been done [on potential signings]. I’ve got people here, there and everywhere. We’ve put the miles in. I’ve been out there myself. It’s now a case of making things happen. It’s not easy. 

"Anyone with a bit of courage and strength of character who wants to battle it out, and be part of a great group of players, then we’ll have you.”

'I'm proud of my players'

Hull 2-2 Everton

Hull boss Mike Phelan, speaking to BBC Sport: "For three or four weeks we’ve put in a shift and got nothing. We could be greedy and ask for more but I’m proud of the players.  

“Robert Snodgrass has shown his quality on free-kicks this season. We need those things. The top league demands top players to score top goals."

'Barkley is important for Everton'

Hull 2-2 Everton

Everton boss Ronald Koeman, speaking to BBC Sport: "I’m really pleased about our performance. I wasn’t happy with our slow start but we showed a really good attitude and reaction twice. 

"We played good football and created a lot of opportunities. We could have stopped the first goal but not the second. The team showed good spirit. We needed a bit more luck like Dominic Calvert-Lewin's late header because that was three points.

"Ross Barkley is an important player for the team. He showed his quality. He had a good performance.

"We like to keep the momentum after the win against Leicester. Two away games, four points is good."

'We're up for the fight'

Hull 2-2 Everton

Hull City manager Mike Phelan, speaking to Sky Sports: "I think it's a terrific point. The goal we conceded at the end of the first half changes your whole way of thinking. We produced a battling performance and I'm pleased with the players. We are in a battle for the rest of the season but we're up for it."

On keeper David Marshall's own goal: "Mistakes happen. I can remember many keepers and outfield players making mistakes. In the second half he pulled off a couple of important saves."

Confirmation that Hull City are off the bottom of the Premier League table. However, Mike Phelan's side will start 2017 propping up the rest if Swansea avoid defeat at home to Bournemouth tomorrow (15:00 GMT).

'We fought for everything'

Hull 2-2 Everton

Everton boss Ronald Koeman, speaking to Sky Sports: "I think the crowd loved this game because it was really open. Twice we showed great character and a good reaction. You can't stop a free-kick specialist like Robert Snodgrass. We fought for everything. We had the better chances to win the game. You like to win every game, but sometimes you have to be happy with one point."

On his transfer window plans: "We know what we want and where we need to improve."

'Worst possible start'

Hull 2-2 Everton

Everton captain Phil Jagielka, speaking to Sky Sports: "We got off to the worst possible start. We showed some decent resilience and started the second half well. Robert Snodgrass is a player of great ability. I'm sure the manager wants to bring a few players in. He has got his own plans."

Hull boss Mike Phelan will be thinking what could have been. They took the lead twice and threw it away to a free header, when you have three big centre-backs.

Overall, a thoroughly entertaining game. It was was scrappy and frantic at times but a draw is a fair result.

Robert Snodgrass was excellent, but not just for his set pieces, but his all-round play too.

Ross Barkley came up with a fantastic header for the equaliser, but striker Romelu Lukaku was kept quiet.

'Big disappointment'

Hull 2-2 Everton

Hull City captain Michael Dawson, speaking to Sky Sports: "Going ahead twice at home... it's a big disappointment to concede. The result takes us off the bottom and we will try to build on that. Results have not quite gone our way in recent weeks but we will keep fighting."

A brilliant ball in from Leighton Baines to pick out Ross Barkley.

The Everton man somehow found himself unmarked and headed it low into the net.

GOAL - Hull 2-2 Everton

Ross Barkley

And that's why Hull are where they are. 

The home team's defence goes missing as Leighton Baines delivers a cross for an unmarked Ross Barkley to head home from close range.

Baines collides with the assistant referee

It's been a night to forget for Leighton Baines. The Everton full-back gave away the free-kick which led to Robert Snodgrass' sublime goal and he's collided with the assistant referee.

Desperate appeals for hand ball from Everton as Tom Davies' attempted pass inside the Hull box hits Jake Livermore. The referee is not interested.

'Great opportunity'

This is now a great opportunity for Hull to get off the bottom of the Premier League table.

They just need to stay calm, keep their concentration and waste as much time as they can when they get the ball.

SUBSTITUTION

Another Everton change, another teenager on the pitch. Nineteen-year-old forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin replaces Enner Valencia, who has posed little threat.

Robert Snodgrass has been impressive for Hull, getting himself involved at both ends of the pitch as this touch map illustrates.

What does that goal do to the table? Hull are currently 18th as it stands. Managerless Swansea are bottom while Sunderland are 19th.

'What a strike'

Danny Mills

What a strike that is from Robert Snodgrass.

Everton goalkeeper Joel Robles could not get over quick enough, it is six inches under the crossbar.

A fabulous free-kick.

Snodgrass has been Hull's best player by a mile, all the quality has come from him. Teams will be looking at him just for his delivery alone. His all-round general play is good too.

GOAL - Hull 2-1 Everton

Robert Snodgrass

What a stunner, Robert Snodgrass!

Leighton Baines gives away a free-kick after barging Harry Maguire to the floor just outside the area.

Everton form a wall but it can't stop Snodgrass who produces an absolute belter into the corner of the net to give Hull the lead for the second time.

A point is not the worst result in the world for Hull. If you asked Mike Phelan before the game if he would take a point, he would have reluctantly said yes.

Which way will this go?

Hull are not sitting back and have made their first change - Sam Clucas is on for David Meyler.

CLOSE!

Another poor Everton clearance from a corner allows the unmarked Michael Dawson to test Joel Robles from close range. That's a big block by the Everton keeper.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Hull 1-1 Everton

Two goals, including a goalkeeping howler, and now the woodwork is rattled for a third time. This has been an incident-packed affair.

This time Robert Snodgrass is denied from a sublime set-piece just outside the area. That would have been a beauty.

'Tame'

Hull 1-1 Everton

Danny Mills

Ex-England defender on Radio 5 live

It was a tame effort from Ross Barkley. He was through one-on-one and was caught in two minds whether to drive it or go for the side-foot.

He did neitther and it ended up in the hands of David Marshall.

Hull 1-1 Everton

It's all Everton. Ross Barkley is clean through but the midfielder's shot is easily saved by David Marshall. That was a golden chance. Hull look like they have had all the energy sapped away.

It was a great start for Hull but for the goal they conceded, it was a simple corner but a massive mix-up between David Marshall and Dieumerci Mbokani. They were both at fault for that.
