  1. Post update

    That is your lot for tonight though.

    With a third of the season gone, and just nine points between the relegation zone and the Champions League spots, we have a humdinging a Premier League campaign in prospect.

    Just as long as you ignore pesky Chelsea, seven points out in front, that is.

    See you all later.

    Crystal Pace winger Yannick Bolasie: Good win today. The Premier League only gets harder - let's go CPFC.

  3. Week ahead

    Your week ahead in football looks a little something like this.

    Aston Villa v Southampton is your Premier League Monday night action.

    Manchester City are fighting for their Champions League lives at home to Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

    Tottenham at home to Partizan Belgrade and Everton away to Wolfsburg is your Europa League Thursday, with Celtic playing Red Bull Salzburg at Parkhead.

    Hull 1-2 Tottenham

    Gaston Ramirez

    Gaston Ramirez was making his first start of the season for Hull.

    A red card 50 minutes in means he will have to wait a while for his second.

    It may be all a little academic, but I thought the Uruguayan looked bright before his early bath.

  7. Manager reaction

    Hull 1-2 Tottenham

    Steve Bruce

    Hull manager Steve Bruce on BBC: "For me the Premier League is the spectacle it is because of the honesty and ferociousness of it. It was petulant by Ramirez but it is not violent conduct. Vertonghen goes down as if he has been pole-axed.

    "Vertonghen's actions are there for everyone to see but does he have to go over like that? I would be really disappointed if I was going to do something like that. The linesman 10 yards away and there is a difference between a flick and violent conduct.

    "It spoils the game, we have lost the game on a decision.

    "We were more like ourselves, we were excellent in the first half,. The whole game changed the moment the guy got sent off."

    Crystal Palace 3-1 Liverpool

    Liverpool's fixture list could go one of two ways for Brendan Rodgers.

    It could be an ideal run of games against weaker opposition for his side to recover confidence. Or, lose most of them and it could be a one-way street to full-blown crisis.

    They play Ludogorets away in the Champions League on Wednesday, Stoke at home on Saturday, Leicester away on 2 December and Sunderland at home on 6 December.

  10. Crystal Palace 3-1 Liverpool

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "It's just not happening for Liverpool; they are not scoring goals and letting too many in it's as simple as that, Teams were scared to death of Liverpool last season and it was all built on that attacking play. But they've had the heart of their side ripped out. They are bottom half of the league, but that's where they should be based on the way they've played. People no longer fear Liverpool, they have a lack of confidence and they are still a scalp. It's the worst of all the worlds for Brendan Rodgers."

    Somewhere, crawling round the south circular right now, is a downcast Liverpool coach.

    On board is a downcast Liverpool coach.

    Brendan Rodgers has not been shy in pointing out his own and his side's shortcomings.

    This is the little list in the centre of the story on the BBC Sport website:

    • His players' passing is too tentative
    • There is not enough intensity and togetherness
    • Confidence is low and the team is conceding poor goals
    • They are not aggressive and not playing as a team.

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino speaking to BBC Sport: "It was very important this victory because it is important to stay in our position. an important win for the supporters and the club. The second half at the beginning, we showed we were a better team, than the first half. Never easy to play against 10 players but in the end we deserved the victory.

    "Hull scored early and it was difficult to manage. They tried to pressure us but in the second half we showed a lot of personality and character and we need to keep that in the next few games."

    Maggie in Suffolk: Once again a sending off has saved spurs. I don't know how we have won this game, but we will take it. They make my nerves bad every time they play these days!

    Mac in Sheffield: If Daniel Levy had been told at the start of the season that he would be on equal points with Arsenal and Everton, then he would've been very happy. Strange places for all the supposed 'big' teams.

    Hull 1-2 Tottenham

    Tottenham goalscorer Christian Eriksen: "In the first half we started slow then we were quicker. With the 10 men it helped us and gave us space.

    Christian Eriksen has just picked up the man of the match award.

    If a Tottenham player, rather than one of the hard-working Hull team, is going to get it, then he is the man.

    A very healthy pass completion rate (92.2%), five chances created and the winning goal. Not too much to argue about there.

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at the KC Stadium

    "This might kickstart Tottenham's season, but I'm not totally convinced by them. They were disjointed at times, but because the Premier League is so tight a couple of wins and you are right back in there. It's a big win for them, but it hinged on the sending off and I'm sure Steve Bruce will have something to say on that. If Hull had got that second goal in the first half it might have been different."

  31. GOAL

    Hull 1-2 Tottenham - Christian Eriksen

    The Hull defence finally cracks.

    Christian Eriksen is the man who picks the lock, drilling home from 20 yards after the hosts sit deeper and deeper.

    What a body blow for a Hull side who have sweated buckets.

    Christian Eriksen scores for Tottenham
  32. PENALTY APPEAL

    Half-hearted appeals from the visitors as Aaron Lennon lifts the ball into Curtis Davies. More chest than hand.

  33. Post update

    Hull 1-1 Tottenham

    Erik Lamela looks like he has controlled the ball in the box. He has, but with his arm. A free-kick which Allan McGregor will take his time over.

  34. SUBSTITUTION

    Hull 1-1 Tottenham

    One to eat up the clock. Stephen Quinn is on to replace Robbie Brady and immediately trots across to mark Aaron Lennon.

  35. Post update

    Hull 1-1 Tottenham

    Erik Lamela shows too much of the ball to Robbie Brady as he attempts to thread it through to Vlad Chiriches.

    When Chiriches does get time and space to look up, Allan McGregor gets out and up to claim the cross.

    Tottenham toiling, Hull surviving.

  36. Post update

    Hull 1-1 Tottenham

    Tottenham scored twice in the second half to come back and claim a win away to Aston villa earlier this month after Christian Benteke had been sent off for the hosts.

    Paul in London: I feel for Mauricio Pochettino. Spurs must look terrific in training, but that's because our defenders are all so clueless that they make Roberto Soldado look like Pele. How do you work on something in training if your players are incapable of taking on basic concepts?

    Rich in Maidstone: looks like referees are going to bail Spurs out every time they are behind away from home this season.

    Dan in London: It's great that Kane scored. But if it stays like this it's a poor result for Spurs.

  39. Hull 1-1 Tottenham

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at the KC Stadium

    "There's only so many times you can say with Roberto Soldado is 'getting into the right areas'. You have to judge a striker on his goals record."

  40. SUBSTITUTION

    Hull 1-1 Tottenham

    A brief bit of confusion on the Spurs bench, but it is Roberto Soldado, rather than Erik Lamela, who will make way to allow Paulinho a run-out. A bit of a strange one with the game apparently there for the taking.

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at the KC Stadium

    "Hull could really do with someone up front who could hold the ball up for then. Nikica Jelavic has run around, chased and harried but they need a player with presence to take the pressure of the defence. Steve Bruce needs to do something - it's just wave after wave of attacks from Spurs now."

    BBC Radio 5 live at the KC Stadium

    "Harry Kane can't stop scoring can he? He's not had the best of games today, but he's once again in the right place at the right time. The ball rebounded back off the post and there's nothing Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor could do about that."

    Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane celebrate
  52. GOAL

    Hull 1-1 Tottenham - Harry Kane

    Christian Eriksen is the source of Totttenham's leveller.

    The Dane whips a fantastic shot over the wall and against the post from 25 yards out. Allan McGregor was beaten all ends up and the only touch he gets on the ball is to accidentally direct the rebound straight to Harry Kane.

    He slots in the rebound from five yards for parity.

    Harry Kane scores for Tottenham
  53. SUBSTITUTION

    Hull 1-0 Tottenham

    Mauricio Pochettino sees Steve Bruce change and takes it as the signal to sharpen his own side's attacking edge. Aaron Lennon on in place of Mousa Dembele.

  54. CLOSE!

    A teaser of a cross from Ben Davies proves frustratingly out of the range of Roberto Soldado's outstretched leg. It was a matter of a few inches though.

  55. SUBSTITUTION

    Hull 1-0 Tottenham

    Steve Bruce has decided that his 10 men cannot afford to include a luxury like Hatem Ben Arfa. The Frenchman is hooked with the less subtle skills of David Meyler thrown into the mix instead.

  56. Post update

    Hull 1-0 Tottenham

    Hull could have been two or three to the good. Now it feels like a siege is brewing.

    Steve Bruce is exasperated with the decision to send off Gaston Ramirez. It could well be a turning point and Ramirez, while provoked, has to bear some of the blame.

  57. Hull 1-0 Tottenham

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at the KC Stadium

    "It was a David Beckham-esque kick out by Gaston Ramirez but nowhere as aggressive. It was quite a soft sending off really with minimal contact but by the letter of the law I guess the referee has to send him off. With the extra man Spurs should dominate and make the pitch wide."

    Gaston Ramirez chops down Jan Vertonghen
  58. RED CARD

    Hull's Gaston Ramirez

    The red mist descended for Gaston Ramirez and the red card climbs out of Craig Pawson's pocket.

    The Uruguayan was ruffled by the attentions of Mousa Dembele and Ben Davies and is tipped over the edge by Jan Vertonghen easing his knee into him as he lay on the floor.

    Ramirez reacts by kicking out at Vertonghen, the linesman spots the retaliation and that is curtains for the Hull midfielder.

    On Raheem Sterling: "He's played a lot of games. There is a lot of pressure on the young player. He's not an unknown and is a marked player. Raheem's confidence is not quite as high and the intensity not quite as high. He's an outstanding talent - he's going to have little spells like that."

    On Mario Balotelli: "Mario came back from the Italy squad and it was still sore [groin] - we will assess that over the next few days."

    On getting back to basics: "The confidence is low - we need to find a way. This has been a new phase - a lot of games, a lot less preparation time. We can't complain - we have to find a way to get results and show real size and power of the club. We need to get back to the basics."

    On his future at the club: "I'm not arrogant to think I'll be in a job through anything. You have to win games and results. I've got a great communication line with the owners - we are honest and open with each other. I know that we have to get results and perform. The owners have to see development on the field - our development has been very good and fast. I will only ever do my best - I need to fight even harder and take responsibility."

    "Our confidence is not high at the moment, we do not see speed in the passing and we have to work even harder.

    That is criminal. Christian Eriksen stands up his man on the byeline and sends a peach of a cross fizzing through the six-yard box, right down the corridor of uncertainty.

    Christian Eriksen goes in to try and win a 50:50 ball from Gaston Ramirez in the centre circle. The Dane had every right to go for it, but it doesn't look good as he gets there a millisecond late and leaves Ramirez in a quivering heap.

    Both defences stretched close to breaking point.

    Better from Spurs. Erik Lamela is alert to flick the ball onto Eric Dier and the full-back gets in a decent cross which Curtis Davies heads clear to the edge of the area.

    Liverpool has more of the ball against Palace earlier today and Tottenham have certainly been second best so far at the KC.

  90. Hull 1-0 Tottenham

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at the KC Stadium

    "Playing that high line Spurs look like they are going to get caught. They had two brilliant chances in a row for Hull. It's incredible that they are only 1-0 up. Will they live to regret not putting it to bed?"

    Hull manager Steve Bruce
  91. CLOSE!

    Hull 1-0 Tottenham

    Tottenham should be 2-0 adrift as Hull miss two fine chances.

    First Robbie Brady demands a good save out of Hugo Lloris with a snap-shot from 15 yards. Lloris has to be smart again to keep out a thumper from Gaston Ramirez shortly after and looks on relieved as Hatem Ben Arfa clumps the rebound over the top.

  92. Post update

    Hull 1-0 Tottenham

    If you come that far as a goalkeeper, you have to claim the ball. Hugo Lloris, under pressure from Curtis Davies, drops a free-kick right at Gaston Ramirez' feet. Ben Davies bails out his team-mate with a block on the Uruguayan. It was a crucial one as well.

    Hull 1-0 Tottenham

    Robbie Brady is peeved with Craig Pawson's call as the referee rules that he fouled Erik Lamela as he clambered past the Argentine. Tottenham are struggling to get in the game at the moment.

    It has been a bright start from Hull for whom Gaston Ramirez has been pirouetting like a prima ballerina, keeping the ball and drawing a foul in the centre circle.

  97. GOAL

    Hull 1-0 Tottenham - Jake Livermore

    Jake Livermore does not celebrate against his old club, but he must take some personal satisfaction from that strike.

    Tottenham clear the initial ball into the box through Federico Fazio, but fail to apply enough pressure on their former player. Livermore controls, gets his head up and drills a low shot into the bottom corner from 20-odd yards.

    That is the sort of drive and directness that Tottenham could do with in their own midfield.

    Keith in Chester: It's been forgotten that Liverpool are only five points off fourth place despite all their troubles. Surely if they are in crisis then so are Arsenal Everton and Spurs?

    Rob in Birmingham: If Kenny Daglish was still in charge Liverpool's league position would be far better now and he would have had the nous to take the title last year from their winning position? He signed Suarez after all. Still a big mistake letting him go for me. How many other managers are there around who have won the league?

    James in London: I don't think anyone will deny Liverpool overachieved last season. This meant Rodgers created a rod for his own back. When he came in two seasons ago, we all said he needs time. The fact that we had a great, perhaps lucky season last year, does not change that fact.

    Hal in Edinburgh: Brendan Rodgers' tactical set up was perfect with someone as dynamic as Luis Suarez playing that open centre forward role. He's gone now, not been replaced and now we see how weak Liverpool are as a squad despite incredible funds recently. Brendan's transfer policy is too poor at this point to be safe in his job.

    Scott in Warrington: Liverpool need to sign a big player to bring the mojo back. Rodgers won't get the support of the board based on their current position. It's a vicious cycle. I can't see why any iconic players would want to sign for Liverpool, either. I bet Rickie Lambert is thinking if he made a mistake leaving Southampton.

    Matt: Liverpool bought the polar opposite of Suarez in Mario Balotelli and Lambert. They'd have been better off bringing Carlos Tevez in for a season.

    Tottenham are without the suspended Kyle Naughton, so Eric Dier deputises at right-back, while Erik Lamela replaces Andros Townsend, who withdrew from England duty with an ankle injury.

    Hull XI: McGregor, Elmohamady, Robertson, Dawson, Davies, Huddlestone, Livermore, Ramírez, Brady, Ben Arfa, Jelavic. Subs. Harper, Rosenior, Chester, Meyler, Hernandez, Sagbo, Quinn

    Simon in York: There's no room for sentimentality in football. Steven Gerrard clearly doesn't have the dignity to just retire like Gary Neville did so the club need to get rid of him in my opinion. I understand he's desperate to win the Premier League but Liverpool can't continue to indulge him like this. He could be in his 60s or 70s by the time Liverpool surround him with good enough players to win a title. Just get rid.

    Bill in Hereford: What has happened to Liverpool? They can't pass forward, they couldn't keep a clean sheet if their lives depended on it (nothing has changed there I suppose) and they don't look half or even a quarter as convincing when in attack as they did last season! I like Brendan Rodgers, he is a very good manager but he needs to sort this out soon.

    Jacob in Derby: We (Liverpool) need to just accept that every time we even get close to success, it will always be followed by what our players and manager will describe as a period of 'transition'. Reality is that we'll never hold a period of success like Manchester United or Arsenal did.
