Sunderland revival continues with win over Hull

Jermain Defoe

Jermain Defoe scored his 150th Premier League goal as Sunderland comfortably beat Hull City to secure consecutive top-flight wins for the first time since May.

Defoe’s darting run and firm low finish made him just the eighth player in Premier League history to bring up the milestone, in a first half that otherwise was a positive one for the visitors.

The in-form Victor Anichebe scored twice after the break for David Moyes’ rejuvenated side, who remain inside the bottom three but are at least off the foot of the standings, replaced by Swansea.

Hull had their chances and looked good going forward, but in Jordan Pickford they found an impressive young goalkeeper in no mood to be beaten.

Papy Djilobodji’s late red card for a second caution took some of the gloss off for Sunderland.
