Hull City under still-caretaker manager Mike Phelan have continuously churned out unlikely results this season. However, maybe there is too much luck involved for it to continue?
The Tigers have mainly got to thank Scotsman Robert Snodgrass for his contribution to this with 2 goals - he is also their main shooter with 12 shots. What's most striking is Hull's dependence on the long ball and Abel Hernandez's ability to compete for it. They lead the league for long balls attempted with 83 and more of their action comes in their own third than any other team. Amazingly, they also play the least football of any team in the opposition third. Their conversion rate of the (2nd last in PL) big chances they had points to how perilous their play really is. 6 goals is an overperformance for their play, and as defences wise up to their basic tactics, it's hard to see their success continuing.

Robert Snodgrass scored for the second consecutive week and the third time this season in Week 5.

It wasn't a strong outing from Hull City who have started the season in surprisingly good form. While it wasn't great from Mike Phelan's men overall the match saw another goal from Robert Snodgrass who has been Hull City's best attacker thus far with three goals in five matches including today's penalty and last weekend's set piece.

Hull City was on the other side of a dramatic late-game goal with Robert Snodgrass securing a point in a 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Snodgrass carried over his spectacular form with Scotland during the international break, where he scored a hat-trick in a World Cup qualifier against Malta just days ago, to score the equalizer against Burnley on the final play of the match off a free-kick in the 95th minute. Down 1-0 after Burnley's 72nd-minute goal, Tom Huddlestone drew a foul outside the box that set Snodgrass up for the last-second goal, his second of the season. Both Ryan Mason and Will Keane made their club debuts as substitutes.

Robert Snodgrass continued his fine start to the season by netting a hat-trick for Scotland.

The Scots were pitted against Malta in their opening World Cup qualifier and swatted the minnows aside after early struggles. "Snoddy" opened the scoring on the night when a cross from the right flank on the edge of the box curled over all the expecting foreheads to nestle in the top left hand corner. However, Malta drew level and held out until the interim with the score 1-1. Snodgrass spurned a great headed opportunity before later scoring a penalty and slotting home his side's 5th in a 1v1 with the goalkeeper. Hull fans and fantasy managers alike will hope that the 28 year old can maintain his form when the PL returns.

In a result no one could have expected, Hull City managed to defeat the defending league Champions Leicester city by a 2-1 scoreline.

The Tigers were able to take advantage of a Foxes side that were not moving the ball fluidly and what chances they did create were not hitting the target. Despite a patchwork XI, Hull were an equal match with the champs in the first half and found an opening goal in spectacular fashion. Just before the break, a corner was headed on target but punched away by Kasper Schmeichel. The ball landed on the chest of Abel Hernandez and he sent an overhead kick that took a touch off of Adama Diomande who also went with an overhead and the ball found the underside of the bar. After allowing Leicester to equalize, Robert Snodgrass, who was very lively both on set pieces and open play smashed home the match-minner in the 57th minute with a low strike to the corner. It may not last long, but Hull at the moment are incredibly at the top of the league table.

Hull City have released a statement confirming Robert Snodgrass has not suffered a setback during his recovery from a serious knee injury and the midfielder will continue to step up his rehab.

Steve Bruce invested heavily in the Scottish international last summer but the unfortunate Snodgrass suffered a terrible knee dislocation just 40 minutes into his Tigers’ career ruling him out for between 9-12 months. His loss coupled with injuries to other key players - Nikica Jelavic [21 starts] following knee surgery and Mo Diame [2 starts in 2015] due to a persistent knee problem - ultimately had a huge bearing as Hull struggled to absorb their losses with such a small squad. Recovery of the trio is paramount if Hull hope to bounce straight back into the BPL.

Steve Bruce has confirmed that new signing Robert Snodgrass is set to miss at least six months after a scan revealed the midfielder dislocated his knee and damaged ligaments during the win over QPR.

The news comes as a devastating blow for the Scottish international who was hopeful of a return within 2/3 months; but a second battery of tests indicated the damage was far worse than first feared after his initial scan proved inconclusive. The Hull City squad is already stretched having to fight on two separate footballing fronts - Premier and the Europe League - and this latest development could force the Tigers coach back into the transfer market with only ten days of the window remaining.

Hull City's opening day victory at Loftus Road was tainted by the news that new signing Robert Snodgrass could be set for an extended spell on the side-lines.

Steve Bruce fears the worse after midfielder Robert Snodgrass was replaced just before half-time after failing to recover from a heavy Joey Barton tackle. The Tigers manager confirmed post-match that his new £7 million man twisted his knee in the challenge and will be sent for a scan to confirm the full extent of the damage. The injury adds to a growing list of concerns which include Liam Rosenior and Alex Bruce (both back); Hull City take on Lokeren from Belgium on Thursday in the Europa League.

Robert Snodgrass is another midfield recommendation in this week's player picks column.

Hull have completed some decent business over the summer, none more so then securing Snodgrass from relegated Norwich. The Scottish international looked a class apart last season and will be a constant danger from corners and free-kicks around the area. At a fantasy price of £7million it's hard to think of a reason not to pick him.

Hull City played a more attacking, midfield-centric line-up in their home Europa Cup win last night that featured a start for Robert Snodgrass.

High profile signing Robert Snodgrass started the second leg of Hull City's Europa Cup qualifying win over AS Trencin where he came in off the bench in the first leg. Given the fee paid for Snodgrass, the expectation will be that he will start far more frequently than he doesn't and this was no exception. It is newsworthy because he didn't start the previous match. As a pre-season bonus, Snodgrass started the move that yielded the winner for Hull City.

Hull City continue an aggressive summer transfer campaign with the signing of Norwich winger Robert Snodgrass.

While not all of their efforts have been successful, Hull City can't be accused of lacking for ambition on the heels of their FA Cup final appearance. The club has already made Jake Livermore's loan permanent and chased Jolene Lescott. Snodgrass continues the search for quality players with Premier League experience.

Steve Bruce's FA Cup runners up have been linked with a move for Norwich City attacking midfielder Robert Snodgrass.

With the Canaries being relegated it is inevitable that their better and more expensive players will be targets for transfer activity. With Hull City adding Europa Cup to their schedule next season they will need to expand their squad to prevent a step back in the league that they can't afford. Snodgrass would be a solid addition at the suggested price of £4million. He would help mitigate the expanded schedule as well as concern over a thin group of Premier League quality goalscorers.

Robert Snodgrass scored a late goal to give Norwich hope of a comeback but Norwich ended up losing 4-2.

Snodgrass scored in the 86th minute to bring Norwich within a goal of a tie but Southampton regrouped and scored a goal to win it 4-2. The other Norwich goal came from Johan Elmander. At the end, the only thing the Norwich goals did were give fans some hope for the future and ruin the day for many fantasy managers who had Artur Boruc in goal. Snodgrass is not to be trusted to contribute regularly.

Robert Snodgrass scored his fifth goal of the season as Norwich moved away from the relegation zone and dented Tottenham's top-four hopes.

The Norwich win was fully deserved as they showed more effort and more quality than their opponents. Snodgrass was the hero, scoring the solitary goal with a fine finish, and had it not been for a couple of good saves from Hugo Lloris it could've been a greater margin of victory. Bradley Johnson thundered a free-kick off the underside of the bar, while John Ruddy put in a solid performance in net, denying Emmanuel Adebayor and Nacer Chadli in the second half. Norwich move four points clear of the relegation zone while Spurs have a big six point gap to make up on 4th placed Liverpool.

Norwich City were held out by West Ham as they continue to struggle for goals and sink closer to the relegation zone in a 2-0 loss.

The drought for the Canaries has been going on too long and they need a spark somewhere fast lest they find themselves out of the top flight next season. Since a two goal effort against WBA back in early December, they have gone 11 matches of one goal or less, with the goals that have come occurring against the weakest of sides. In short, their squad is currently a fantasy wasteland with no dependable prospect, including last season's productive Robert Snodgrass, in sight. They will look for an answer when they host Spurs next time out.
