Points For Hull To Play For

A 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday stretched City's run without a win in all competitions to four games, leaving them 14 points behind the Premier League leaders with eight games remaining.

Manchester City's Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero (L) celebrates scoring his team's second goal during the English Premier League football match between Manchester City and Hull City at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, north west England, on April 8, 2017.

Until then it had been a quiet return for the Chilean, who was dropped in January after a series of poor performances and conceding six goals from six shots faced in back-to-back games against Everton and Tottenham.

That would have made it a flawless afternoon for Guardiola, but it was spoilt late on as Shaun Maloney cut the ball back for Ranocchia, on loan from Inter Milan, to steer a shot under Bravo's dive with the visitors' only effort on target. The criticism of the 33-year-old will continue although the keeper could claim his view was obscured by John Stones.

"In [Borussia] Dortmund with Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel he played in a two, but always as a guy who has the ability to arrive in those positions - he is good with the headers, he is good with the last pass".

Little was known then about the former Sporting Lisbon and Olympiakos coach, but he has lifted the Tigers off the bottom of the table and out of the relegation zone after winning five of his 11 league games in charge.

Hull City have only 21 points left to play for in this year's battle in the Premier League.

With Hull threatening on the counter, Jakupovic remained relatively untroubled until he had to parry over Yaya Toure's goal-bound free-kick.

Manchester City didn't just appoint Pep Guardiola to win trophies.

Hull should have restored parity immediately, but Oumar Niasse somehow failed to turn in Kamil Grosicki's deflected cross from point-blank range.

Their second came after the break as a fine passing move from one end of the field to the other culminated with Sterling weaving through the defence and pulling back for Aguero to force home. The Foxes have already tasted victory at Goodison Park this season, in the FA Cup, when the team was struggling under Claudio Ranieri, and won there last season so it is an entirely realistic prospect.

"The second goal is the big example of what we would like to be", Guardiola said.
