A fantastic display saw Fulham defeat Hull City 4-1 in the Fourth Round of the Emirates FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.

A fantastic display saw Fulham defeat Hull City 4-1 in the Fourth Round of the Emirates FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.

A clinical Sone Aluko volley had given the hosts a deserved half-time lead, although the Premier League side restored parity after the break through Goebel Evandro’s header.

Ryan Sessegnon then squared for Chris Martin to put Fulham back in front, before the pair reversed roles for the teenager to make it 3-1.

Stefan Johansen wrapped up the win following good play by Tom Cairney, with more drama to follow as Hull’s misery was compounded when Abel Hernandez saw two penalties saved by Marcus Bettinelli.

Slaviša Jokanović switched up his full-backs for the tie, bringing in Denis Odoi and Sessegnon for Ryan Fredericks and Scott Malone, while Bettinelli replaced David Button in goal.

Hull were forced into a substitution early doors when captain Curtis Davies had to come off. Harry Maguire came on in his place at the heart of defence.

Aluko – who came on for City in the 2014 FA Cup Final – haunted his former employers with a fine goal in the 17th minute. After Martin was fouled, Johansen clipped a free-kick to the far post where Tomas Kalas rose brilliantly to head back across goal to Aluko who rifled in on the volley.

The Tigers threatened a response soon after when a deflected ball dropped kindly into Adama Diomande’s path, but he smashed his powerful effort a yard wide of the near post from the edge of the box.

Sessegnon was then given a sighter at the other end, but his strike was quickly charged down and blocked, before Martin blazed over following a swift Fulham break.

Some liquid football from the Whites on half an hour culminated in Kevin McDonald slipping Johansen in with an exquisite pass, but his delivery flashed across the face of goal with no harm done.

A stunning Aluko run then saw him bamboozle half the Hull team before eventually poking wide. One challenge he rode was a nasty lunge by Maguire, who was booked in the aftermath.

There was a let-off for the home side soon after, though, when Hernandez beat Bettinelli to a hopeful ball over the top and rounded the Fulham ‘keeper. Thankfully, Lucas Piazon had bust a gut to get back and put the tackle in, which Hernandez then controlled with his arm before lashing a shot against the crossbar, which would not have counted.

The striker had another opening almost immediately, but this time his fierce effort was beaten away by Bettinelli.

McDonald then joined Maguire in the referee’s notebook following a mistimed challenge on Evandro.

Hernandez had grown into the game and he threatened again in the 39th minute with a wicked strike in the box which would have tested Bettinelli, were it not for Kalas’ wonderful sliding block.

Fulham had the ball in the net a minute later when Sessegnon slid a neat effort through the legs of Eldin Jakupovic, but the pass from Johansen came a fraction late and he’d strayed offside.

Another good chance came and went in stoppage time when Odoi’s downwards header from Martin’s cross was kept out at full stretch by Jakupovic, with Johansen then blazing the follow-up over.

Four minutes into the second half Johansen slipped a cute ball into Piazon, who found himself in a race with Jakupovic. He beat the Tigers stopper to it but his square toe poke was cleared by a recovering defender.

Hull then went straight up the other end and equalised when an unmarked Evandro headed in Andrew Robertson’s deep cross.

It almost got worse when Diomande was sent through moments later, but Kalas was on him immediately to belt the ball out for a corner.

But the Whites restored their lead with a devastating move in the 54th minute. Aluko’s eye of the needle pass released Sessegnon who had made a brilliant run, and he squared to Martin who was left with the simple task of tapping home.

Just after the hour mark the visitors made their second change of the afternoon, as striker Oumar Niasse came on for midfielder David Meyler.

It was another delightful team move that made it 3-1 in the 66th minute. Piazon fed Martin who cleverly played a first time pass into the path of Sessegnon who again nutmegged Jakupovic to get the goal his excellent performance deserved.

Johansen was then carded for a late sliding tackle on Lazar Markovic. The free-kick came to nothing, though, with Hull replacing Evandro with Josh Tymon when the ball went out of play.

With little more than 10 minutes to play, Johansen made sure of Fulham’s place in Round Five, firing home from 12 yards after Cairney had held the ball up in the box and squared the ball his way.

The Whites’ first change then saw the relentless Aluko replaced by Floyd Ayité, who was back in the squad following Togo’s elimination from the Africa Cup of Nations. Martin was withdrawn a few moments later, with Thanos Petsos given a debut in his stead.

With five minutes to go, Cairney took aim from 20 yards out and sent a stunning shot towards the top corner that required a fingertip save from Jakupovic. From the subsequent corner the ball was laid off to Petsos, who drilled a shot over from distance.

A minute later a rare Kalas mistake gave Hull a penalty when he scythed down Robertson in the area. Hernandez saw his spot-kick brilliantly saved by Bettinelli, who then brought down the striker as he went to follow up. Take-two saw Betts make an even better save, palming Hernandez’s piledriver over, much to the delight of the home faithful.

Cairney then made way for Ryan Fredericks, before Bettinelli made a flying save in the 90th minute to keep out Tymon’s accurate effort.

Fredericks had one half chance to add some further gloss to the scoreline, but his skewed effort wide did not detract from what was a wonderful afternoon at the Cottage as Fulham booked their place in Round Five in some style.
