    That is a magnificent strike. Not only does he hit it with unbelievable power, it also has incredible bend on it. That must be 25 yards out. A brilliant strike.

  14. Can Hull halt their 'rotten run'?

    Hull v Stoke (15:00 BST)

    Match of the Day commentator

    Hull's Curtis Davies apologises

    Hull City's season is quickly plunging into the one many of their fans feared after winning promotion.

    Early surprise victories in August have been followed by a rotten run of one point from six games, and last week's 6-1 thrashing at Bournemouth will have the alarm bells ringing.

    Stoke's trajectory is heading in the opposite direction. Joe Allen's amazing goalscoring spree means they've gone three games unbeaten, finally picking up their first win over Sunderland last week.

    Another win here will see them move out of the relegation zone and above Hull.
