Hull City, enjoying their first season in the top flight of English football, secured another three points with a convincing victory at White Hart Lane against Tottenham this afternoon, and confirmed their status as the newest of the 'Big Four'.
City have now won three and drawn one of their four away matches, and currently sit in third on 14 points. Only Chelsea and Liverpool now stand in their way of a first Premiership title.
Tottenham manager Juande Ramos looked a forlorn figure trudging the touchline as his lacklustre side toiled away without really threatening the Tigers well-organised defence, and it will come as no surprise to White Hart Lane fans if he is sacked in the morning.
Hull manager Phil Brown was pleased with his team's second win in a week in north London. He said:
"These big London teams are rubbish! Arsenal, Tottenham, bring on Chelsea!"
The two-week international break will ensure that Hull will stay in third until their next game against West Ham on Sunday 19th October, another fixture they will be favourites to gain three points from. Brown again:
"There'll be trouble in East Yorkshire if we fail to beat that sack of shite!"
